Members of St Austell Running Club were on hand to present a cheque for more than £100 to Children’s Hospice South West, raised at tinsel runs at the end of the last year.
The runners took to the streets of St Austell in fancy dress and raised £105 for the charity over the space of two nights, the club’s run/walk club who meet on a Monday and the main club group on meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The club’s men’s captain Nigel Marshall and his vice Gareth Rowett presented the cheque to Alice Merrett, a community fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West.
She said: “On behalf of all the children and families that we support at Little Harbour I would like to thank St Austell Running Club for their generous donation of £105.
“We are currently supporting over 100 children with life limiting illnesses along with their families so donations like this really will make a difference to the care we can offer local families.”
