The Dorset Flapjack Company are very pleased to be able to support the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust at their 9th Midnight Walk fund raising event. Everyone who takes part will get a Dorset Flapjack in their Goody Bag! There are three different distances 5 miles, 6.5 miles and 10 miles. See their webpage http://www.weld-hospice.org.uk/fundraising/midnight-walk/midnight-walk for more details.
Weldmar Hospicecare Trust is an independent charity working in Dorset. All its services are provided free of charge. 75% of the funds are raised locally; the rest is given by the NHS. This is the only agency providing specialist palliative care in north, south and west Dorset and they do a fantastic job.
The Dorset Flapjack Company was at the Challenge Weymouth Expo from 12th September to 14th September 2014. We had a really great time out in the sunshine and it was fantastic to meet so many Dorset Flapjack fans and to talk to so many dedicated athletes about their nutritional needs during such an event. We can’t wait to do it all again next year when it will also be the European Championship and it will be even bigger and better!
This challenging endurance race took place on 14th September 2014, starting with a 3.8km open water sea swim in the clear blue waters of Weymouth Bay. The rolling 180km bike course weaves through stunning local countryside offering competitors a fast and smooth cycling event, taking in the beautiful surrounding terrain. The 42.2km run then leads through the town, which was bustling with support from family, friends and loved ones, making for a very spectator-friendly end to a gruelling ironman triathlon.
This year’s Studland Stampede will take place on Sunday 11th October and The Dorset Flapjack Company are again providing Dorset Flapjacks for the Goody Bags. The Studland Stampede has a great reputation for its Goody Bags and we hope that it has something to do with the Dorset Flapjacks! Congratulations to Julie and Vickie for organising such a great event that just seems to get better every year!
Stop Press: This year’s Stampede is now fully booked. They will be releasing a small number of additional places in September so check out their website if you still want to be included.
