Thank You, Alloa Round Table!

Earlier this month FVRG welcomed Grant, Kenney, and John from Alloa Round Table along to Grangemouth Sports Complex to thank them for their recent donations to our roller derby league.

The Round Table are a national organisation who organise events for their community to enjoy and support local groups.

Founded in 1995, the Alloa Round Table’s most popular events are their annual Alloa Half Marathon and fireworks display. These events grows in popularity each year, and over the past three years FVRG have been happy to help out. The group have very generously provided financial support to our league to thank us for our help, which has contributed towards our training costs; a new PA system; and most recently, our new team uniforms.

When we met with Chairman Grant, PR & Media Member Kenney, and Entertainments Member John, they told us some more about their events calendar for 2016. The upcoming Alloa Half Marathon, to be held on 20th March, was top of the list. There’s a real buzz surrounding this event, and we can see why: lessons have been learned from previous years, meaning that the 2016 event offered 3000 places to amateur runners right through to professional athletes – an increase of 500 places from last year! FVRG volunteers will be on-hand to register the runners at the Alloa Leisure Bowl, to marshal the course across the Wee County, and to present the well-deserved medals at the end of the race.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Alloa Round Table and in particular Grant, Kenney, and John for their continued support. We look forward to volunteering at many more of their events in the coming months and years.
