THIS year’s Timberhonger 10K race which was held in conjunction with the Bromsgrove Carnival, has raised a staggering £3,000 for local charities.
The cash has now been presented to the trio of causes- the Primrose Hospice, The Basement Project, and the Friends of the Princess of Wales Community Hospital.
Race director Mark Gordon said: “We’re really pleased to be able to help these three Bromsgrove charities.
“I’ve seen the difference they are making to people in our community and it’s just brilliant.”
Primrose Hospice chief executive Helen Garfield showed Mark the new extension to the hospice in Aston Fields which will allow the organisation to provide more day care facilities and bereavement support for people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
Jackie Hooper from the Basement Project said the cash would make a big difference in helping young people to find accommodation and get back into employment.
Kimara Sharpe, from the Friends of the Princess of Wales Community Hospital, said the cash would be used to purchase essential medical equipment. More than 500 runners entered the Timberhonger 10K and the children’s challenge.
