Angela’s birthday run aids the foodbank with amazing result!
Former B30 Foodbank volunteer, Angela Hess from Cotteridge, decided to make the most of her delayed 70th birthday celebrations to aid the concern most close to her heart.
Angela explained: “My 70th birthday party was delayed by a year so approaching my 71st I advertised a Fundraiser on Facebook and also on Gofundme for those friends and family who don’t use Facebook. It hit me that so many people have cannot meet basic, daily needs, never mind have a party.
I feel very strongly about the injustice in the levels of poverty in the UK and how people suffer and I know from first hand experience as a volunteer what a fantastic job the Foodbank does to support people.”
Angela set herself the challenge to run 5km, followed by running/walking a further 5km, and she is pictured here looking after amazing after the 10km challenge. She added: “The fundraiser was a great incentive for me to keep going when what I really wanted to do was stop!”
In total Angela raised an astonishing £1241.85, which will help manny people at a time of crisis. Thank you!
If you could do a birthday fundraiser or take on a sponsored challenge, please think of B30 Foodbank as we are currently struggling to keep up with increased demand and lower donations.
