Last year, one of our supporters completed the Bristol 10k and raised hundreds of pounds for Baby Bank Network in the process. Around the same sort of time, we saw the soaring success of This Mum Runs and it inspired some of our volunteers to put their best foot forward and raise funds for us too.
Baby Bank Network supporter Nicola Farthing from Portishead completed her first ever 10k in just over an hour, raising over £200 for us. She said: “I hope this goes some small way to providing cot mattresses and storage space so that you can continue supporting Bristol families in this way.”
We’re now encouraging anyone who fancies a challenge and helping families in need, to join our Volunteer Co-ordinator Georgina Cairns in registering for the Bristol 10k and start fundraising via our JustGiving campaign page.
The Bristol 10k takes place on Sunday 7th May and attracts runners of all abilities from across the country. It costs £29 to enter and all the sponsorship you raise will come to Baby Bank Network via our JustGiving page. You can register for the race and find out more information about the route and training help, here.
Please do also drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add you to our runners list and let you know Baby Bank Network plans for the day itself. Thank you!
