Three great long-serving members honoured with lifetime awards

Roadrunners chair SAM WHALLEY reports on some landmark presentations at the club’s annual awards ceremony…

Congratulations to Sandy Sheppard, Tony Canning and Bob Thomas, who have all been awarded life memberships of Reading Roadrunners.

Sandy has been a member for 21 years, Tony for 22 years, and Bob for 17 years, and the three were recognised by the existing life members and the committee for their
ongoing contribution to the running of the club.

All three of them had served in several roles since they joined, including as committee members, race directors, and charity co-ordinators.

Now, former treasurer Sandy regularly volunteers at club events, Tony — the brains behind the Track Friday meetings — continues to coach, and former secretary Bob carries out a number of administrative tasks.

The club sends congratulations to them all.

Our pictures show Bob with former chairman Carl Woffington and his award, Tony doing what he does best at the Palmer Park track and Sandy receiving her award from current chair Sam Whalley.
