West Wight Road Runners Putting Miles In For Isle Of Wight Food Bank

West Wight Road Runners with their Food Bank donations

Last night (Wednesday) saw West Wight Road Runners transform their weekly club event into a 'Food Bank Run'.

They then ran with their items to the local drop-off station at Tesco's.

Once in store they all put their food and toiletry donations into the collection point and then carried on with the rest of the evenings 5.5 mile run.

Club Captain Gemma Swain said:

"This is the second time we have done The Food Bank Run.

"It's a national movement that began at Fareham running club and has now seen over 500 groups take part.

"Our club is only small but we all know that any donation makes a difference to the Food Bank. We'd love to see other running clubs on the Island do the same during their club runs."
