Westonbirt 10k race

Janet ran the Westonbirt 10k in 2015:

"I wanted to support Westonbirt in memory of my husband Nick. He always enjoyed the arboretum and it was one of the few places he was still able to visit when he was ill.

"I had already started running, so the Westonbirt 10k was the perfect opportunity to combine the running bug with being able to support the arboretum."

Your sponsorship will help care for Westonbirt, so that everyone has the chance to enjoy the arboretum’s stunning tree collection and landscape.
