Sidmouth Herald sponsors Beat Bus trophy
Second Beat the Bus race will raise funds for Sidmouth Living With Cancer group
THE Sidmouth Herald has sponsored a memorial trophy that will be presented to Beat the Bus race winners for the first time -this year.
In memory of former Sidmouth paramedic Colin Craig, who died, aged 48, of cancer last August, leaving widow Lisa and four children, the trophy will now be given to the overall winner of subsequent Beat the Bus races.
Herald news editor, Diana Bowerman, said: “I am delighted that Archant SW could sponsor this excellent trophy in memory of Colin, and I am sure, as Beat the Bus is now a firm fixture in everyone’s diary, it will be competed for for many years to come.”
Entries are now coming in for the event, which will see runners trying to beat the Otterton to Sidmouth Stagecoach bus on Wednesday, June 29.
