Thank you to the team who joined us for the British 10K London Run on 10th July 2016.It was a great day as they ran through the heart of central London, passing many of the capital’s historic landmarks.

Rachel, who raised an incredible £2,000 said:

“I got very excited about raising money for a charity that I see making a real difference in my local community.  Seeing how the demand for local foodbank services has increased so much over the past couple of years is hugely concerning, but seeing the work that The Trussell Trust does to not only maximize their reach in this area, but also investing in other projects such as budgeting and cooking workshops for individuals and families shows that although demand is on the rise, the charity is working hard to support and influence change at a grass roots level. I’m so thrilled knowing that the money can be invested in local projects that creates change and opportunities for so many.”

Marc who ran with us last year said:

“Running the British 10k was totally worth it, I’m glad I did it to support The Trussell Trust. I read a story in our local newspaper about a woman who had to knock on a neighbour’s door to borrow a tin of soup to feed her 18-month-old child. I couldn’t believe people have to do this in 2015, and with my daughter the similar age as hers, I wanted to try and do something to help.”

 

Check back soon for details on how to sign up to run for us in 2017!
