The Dave Iles Memorial Hash from Bath Ales Brewery, helps to raise over 1,000.00.

At the end of 2001 we lost one of our most popular members, Dave "Public Enema" Iles, due to cancer.

In addition to a collection at the time in lieu of flowers, which raised 600.00, there have been a number of events since, the first of which was a memorial run, held on Dave's birthday, in June, from the Bath Ales Brewery. Dave's family were kind enough to support the event, which raised a further 590.00.

In September 2002 a Mystery Run to Oxford included an auction, which raised 208.00, and a further 246.00 was raised by Claire "Iron Maiden" Kelly when she ran the London Marathon in 3 hours 49 minutes, a personal best.

The total of 1,044.00 has been sent to the Friends of Bristol Oncology Centre, to go towards the cost of a digital X-ray machine. Well done to everyone who helped.
