The annual and much anticipated Crawley Community Awards have been postponed at the last minute due to fears over the spread of the coronavirus.

In a tweet published this morning Crawley Council said:

It comes as other events around the town are cancelled or postponed as a new daily update from the Government is due to begin today.

Numerous companies across Crawley have already started to ask their staff to work from home and already footfall has dropped at leisure parks and restaurants.

Gatwick Fire Service to run marathon on airports runway for charity

Published

on

It will consist of running 13 lengths of the 3.3km main runway, but WHite Watch Gatwick Fire Service hope to raise money for local hospital charity (SASH).

Taking place on Sunday 14th June, the crew will be running the 13 lengths as a relay, with the final distance being just over that of a marathon.

Taking advantage of the lack of flow during periods of the day, they will use those opportunities to ‘do something different and raise awareness for our local NHS staff putting themselves on the line every day during this pandemic’.

The money will help the staff at East Surrey Hospital and Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust during the Covid 19 situation.

If you would like to help with a donation you can do so at their JustGiving page here.
