Easter fun run raises egg-cellent total for brain injury charity

FUND-raisers braved difficult conditions to raise around £2,000 for local charity Headway at its annual Easter fun run.

Organisers had to make some last-minute changes to the route around the park due to water-logged ground.

In total 130 people took part in the run with many sporting rabbit costumes or bunny ears.

The cash raised will help Headway to assist those with acquired brain injuries and their wider family.

Headway Birmingham and Solihull’s communications and fund-raising manager Julie Wedgbury said: “We went along to the park a few days before the event like we normally do to check the route and found the pathways through the wooded areas too muddy and dangerous to run on.

“Thankfully we were able to work out a new route along




the edge of the trees and the fun run was able to go ahead in safety.”

Everyone who took part in the run was gifted a chocolate egg, many of which had been donated by the local Morrisons, Tesco and Waitrose.


They were also handed an Easter-themed medal as they crossed the finish line, which had been sponsored by Frenkel Topping and designed by one of Headway’s clients Mark Hannaby, who attends the Rednal brain injury centre.
