In Memory Of Lisa
Fairlands Valley Spartans past and present walked ten kilometres on Sunday in memory of Lisa Potter.
Lisa Potter was a very kind hearted Spartans who sadly lost her battle with cancer last year.
The starters award which will be given out at Friday’s presentation evening has been renamed The Lisa Potter Starters Award in her memory. Lisa attended the very first Spartan starters session and was a keen to be there every week. She was always friendly and very welcoming with new members.
