Nochex is proud to sponsor the 2022 Rothwell Harriers & A.C Canal Run Series & Jane Tomlinson Appeal Canal Run .
This year’s series will be made up of 3 events taking place on the 2nd Tuesday of each month starting on May 10th and finishing on July 12th with the Jane Tomlinson Appeal Canal Run which also has the Junior fun run along with the cake competition.
Rothwell Harriers & A.C. have used Nochex to manage entries and collect entry fees for their events and races for the past seven years.
Each year the Canal Run brings together a variety of Yorkshire communities to raise money for a worthwhile cause. For Rothwell Harriers the Jane Tomlinson Appeal Canal Run has a special place in their hearts. Jane Tomlinson CBE was a Rothwell Harrier and took part in the Canal Run.
Sadly, Jane passed away in 2007. Since then, Jane and the Appeal that bears her name have both contributed greatly to the local community. Jane’s memory has been maintained by the launch of her charity appeal. Before her untimely death, and aged just 43, Jane had already raised nearly two-millions pounds for children’s and cancer charities through a series of incredible endurance feats – even while she suffered from her illness.
The Harriers occupy a special place within the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, due to Jane’s membership of the club, and the club’s decision to dedicate their Run to the Appeal with her name. Jane’s husband, Mike, talked about the special relationship with Rothwell Harriers:
“We’re delighted that the Rothwell Harriers are supporting the Jane Tomlinson Appeal again. The Rothwell Harriers have raised well over £20,000 for the appeal over the past 5 years.”

Rothwell Harriers, the race organisers, first began using Nochex for their club management needs in 2013. Registering new club members and taking payments for events was a great way to reduce admin: both saving time for overworked staff and making it easier to keep track of the funds. This meant they could spend more time doing the important things that they really liked.
Rothwell Harriers have noticed a significant improvement in their enjoyment of the Run, since Nochex began providing its JoinUP! service to manage entries and payments. Jason Westmoreland, event director for Rothwell Harriers said: “Leading up to the race, we used to spend lots of time managing funds and administration. Thanks to Nochex this is all automated in one easy to use system.”
Let’s face it, when managing a sports club, the last thing you want to be doing is using your spare time chasing members for their entry fees and managing spreadsheets. At Nochex, we’ve developed a way to collect charges for membership payments. Not only can you register new members online and take payments, but you can raise funds for new kit or equipment, and also create various payment methods.
