£400 donation to Thanet Scout Group in memory of Thanet Roadrunner, Ricki Savage

A £400 donation has been made to the 1st St Lawrence Scout Group from Thanet Roadrunners Athletics Club.  The donation was made from the proceeds from the Ricki Savage 20 Mile Road Race held on 1st March 2015.  The race was dedicated to the memory of Ricki Savage who tragically died after completing the Dublin Marathon in 2013.  

Both Adrian Smith (Ricki Savage Race Director) and Spencer Hoult, a close friend of Ricki and club member, were on hand to make the donation to the group.

The donation is pertinent as Ricki had been raising money for his former scout group.  Older members of the group remember Ricki well and said that one of his passions was to go away to camp each year, which is why they decided to use the money for that purpose.

A representative of 1st St Lawrence Scout Group said, ‘we were very pleased with the donation and were going to put it towards updating some of the camping equipment. ‘
