Paul Lorber says THANK YOU to everyone who sponsored him for his 60km run in celebration of the 60th anniversary of opening of Barham Library.

The Library in Barham Park was opened on 31 May 1952 and sadly closed by Labour Councillors in Brent on 11 October 2011. Our Campaign to get it opened continues and in the meantime we continue to run a very successful Volunteer Library from premises at Barham Primary School.

Paul run the 60km in 5 sessions over 8 days with the help of Ironman competitor Peter Corcoran completing on 5 June 2012 in Barham Park . Together with our stall at the Diamond Jubilee event in Barham Park organised by STRA we raised over £500 – enough to pay for premises hire and other costs of our Volunteer Library between 21 April and 29 July 2012.
