Manchester Great Run Runners and coinciding 10 Clay event raise £5,734Team Venture Arts - 22 runners (staff, participants and volunteers) rose to the challenge and took part in the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run back in May. From regular racers chasing PBs, to those who’d never tackled a road run before, everybody was committed to running their arts out to raise funds for Venture Arts. They took Manchester’s streets in their stride! Everyone completed the 10k (6.2miles) - whilst friends, family and team-mates cheered them over the finish line. Meanwhile, the Venture Arts 10-Clay team (participants, members of Clay Studio and Manchester Ceramics Collective) were creating individually-crafted ceramic cups to say ‘cheers’ and congratulations! A week later the cups made a stunning display at a special ‘thank you’ event. Together, the 10k and 10-Clay teams raised a whopping £5,734 towards studio equipment and refurbishment. Thanks to everybody who took part and to all those who donated to this 10 out of 10 team effort!
