Run for Reach this Christmas

Is it too soon to be talking about Christmas? Well, the Girls Around Town certainly don’t think so – they’ve already started their shopping!

And on next week’s show they’ll be sharing news of an event taking place in the run up to the festive season when June and Rachel are joined in the studio just after 10am by Sarah Cobb, the fundraising officer for local charity Reach

Their first Santa Run will be held at Sconce & Devon Park in Newark on Sunday 9 December, starting at 11am, and if you’re quick off the mark there’s still time to take advantage of the Early Bird Price to join in the fun.

Jog, walk or run round the two mile course and help to raise much-needed funds for Reach. Everyone taking part will receive a mince pie, a medal and a free Santa suit – what’s more, if you accessorise your outfit you could be in with a chance of winning a prize in one of the three categories, for the best fancy dress adult, best fancy dress child or best fancy dress dog!

Register before 11pm on Thursday 27 September and you’ll pay the Early Bird Price of £10 for adults and £5 for children aged 15 and under (standard entry fees from Friday 28 September are £12 and £6.50). In addition, all you’re asked to do is raise a minimum of £10 per person in sponsorship to help Reach raise as much as possible from this family-friendly event.

Full details and registration forms can be found online here – and remember to tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for more information about the event and about the work Reach does to support over 200 adults with learning disabilities in Nottinghamshire.

Burning bright – not burning out!

The future you will live is the one you are creating in this very moment

Do you need to take time out from the ‘busy-ness’ of your world? To take a breath while you explore what it is you really want to be doing, what it is you really want to have and how it is you really want to be?

If you want to press the ‘pause button’ for a while, then what coach, NLP practitioner and the founder of Odonnata Donna Smith has to say on this week’s Girls Around Town is sure to be of interest…

Donna will be joining Rosalyn and June in the studio on Sunday to explain how her Burn Bright workshops help clients who take part spot the signs of overwhelm and potential burn out before it happens.

And how those clients are equipped with the tools and techniques to head that off and help them get a clearer idea of where they are now and where they want to be in terms of their personal burn bright journey.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out what ‘Odonnata’ means, why Donna chose it as the name of her business and where her own journey will be taking her next.

And make sure you’re ready to take note of some of her top tips to help you burn bright – and not out!
