Charity Donation to Cornwall Hospice Care
Members of St Austell Running Club handed over money raised from Christmas Tinsel Runs to local charity – Cornwall Hospice Care.
Over £70 was raised over two nights in December, where club members dressed up in Christmas running attire, to take part in a run together.
When it was all counted up the money was split between the club’s runners who are taking part in April’s London Marathon for the Hospice.
Cornwall Hospice Care’s Community Fundraiser Jane Appleton is also a member of the club and was on hand to receive a cheque from men’s captain Gareth Rowett and ladies’ vice-captain Jacqui Martin, along with other club members.
Men’s captain Gareth Rowett said: “It was really pleasing to hand over the cheque to Cornwall Hospice Care.
“We have raised a lot of money for charities since starting out and this latest donation is just the latest in a long list of charity events.
“Hopefully this money raised will help our runners who are taking part in the London Marathon, all of whom are training hard and working hard to raise vital funds for charity. Good luck to them all.”
A big well done to all those racking up the miles in training runs this weekend and those who complete the Grizzly!
