NOTE 1: Sections C, D and E each have an associated extension sheet for use when you haven’t got enough room on the standard Sponsorship Form.

NOTE 2: The Participation Extension Sheet is just to let us know the number of people who took part and ideally what age range they fall into. We are not trying to gather personal information on people who do not want to give it. If you like, you can just provide the age range answer and nothing else. We dont need a name nor contact details unless you are happy to receive extra information about GHCT OR you are happy for the County Organiser to get in touch (just so he can ask your opinion on an idea from a participant’s point of view).
