VIDEO: Trophy for Crazy Hats champion fundraiser

The biggest fundraiser at this year’s Crazy Hats charity walk in Wicksteed Park has been presented with a trophy by the founder of the popular annual event.

Miranda Menzies, who runs a number of Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Clubs across the county, raised a huge £3,142 for the charity at this year’s event – which was held on a Tuesday evening in May after snowy weather scuppered the original date.

Miranda took part in the walk with a huge team of members of her fitness club.

She said: “I’ve been supporting Crazy Hats for about five years since 2005 and we’ve raised more than £20,000 in that time.”

Glennis Hooper, the founder of Crazy Hats, thanked Miranda for all her hard work.

She said that the running total from this year’s event was £42,000 – lower than the figure raised in 2012 which Glennis put down to the weather and the rearranged date.

She added: “It was still a great event with a great atmosphere.

“We’ll be back next March at Wicksteed Park, on a Sunday, so people should keep an eye out for the date.”

Crazy Hats was set up more than a decade ago by founder Glennis and in that time has raised more than £1.5 million. A lot of that cash has been raised at the annual Wicksteed Park walk.
