Running for the Pelican Cope

 Lucy writes: On Sunday I completed the Oxford Town & Gown 10k, in hot and humid conditions that saw a lot of runners in difficulties. I decided to sacrifice pace to safety, and made it round in the extremely underwhelming time of 1:07:30.  

Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our donors, we have exceeded our target of £1500 by more than £250, and we will shortly be putting into execution the restoration of the Pelican Cope. Names of all the benefactors who contributed to the fundraiser will be stitched inside the lining, and a label asking for prayers for them will be under the maker's mark.
