Spectacular Gala Event
Barracloughs Opticians recently contributed towards the Arrow Awards which took place on Thursday 21st July at the Powdermills Hotel, Battle, sponsoring the Lifetime Achievement Category which was won by Eric Hardwick.
Eric created and started the Hastings Half Marathon which is now in its 28th year, and has raised over £3m for charity over the years. He has been Race Director right from the very beginning and also put on the 2008 Hastings 100th Anniversary Marathon. He served as a Chairman of Sussex Athletic on the roadrunning committee for many, many years, and has helped a number of other running events in the surrounding area get off the ground.
Eric was awarded the MBE in 2007, and has also received Hastings highest honour - the 1066 Award.
Barracloughs Director's Nigel Barraclough and Jeremy Heynes attended the black tie event and presented the award to Eric on the night.
