The annual Hagbourne Fun Run raises money for cancer research and for the East and West Hagbourne Village Fund. This is a modest pot of money available to support local good causes. It was set up in March 1995 with the objective “to provide a contingency fund of money for the villagers of East and West Hagbourne.” This can be funds to assist villagers quickly in times of need, or to provide an item / facility to benefit the villages. Applications have to be made in writing: they are considered on their merits by the Village Fund Committee (basically the Fun Run Committee members) who decide whether funds should be awarded and how much.
In the past we have supported such diverse causes as the defibrillators, the village hall extension, an educational course, posters for a local campaign, and family support for medical treatment. It is funded entirely by the Fun Run (and donations made on the day).
