Club members handed over around £100 worth of food and provisions, as well as collecting £112 in donations. The event was based at Willey Village Hall and involved a run of up to four miles around surrounding lanes and woodland.
“This was our annual social event and we chose to support the Bridgnorth Food Bank to benefit because it is such a good cause,” said Natalie Carr, running club chair.
“There was a good turn out of members and an amazing response when we asked for food donations, with more gifts still coming in.
“We all enjoyed the run and it was great to be able to sit down and relax with a barbeque afterwards,” Natalie added.
Phil Webster, chair of the Bridgnorth Food Bank, thanked the club for its contribution.
He commented: “Without the donations of organisations such as Bridgnorth Running Club the food bank could not help the number of clients who now require our support.”
Bridgnorth Running Club caters for adults of all abilities and meets on a Monday and Thursday under the Town Hall at 7pm.
