Foodbank Fun Run

With record numbers of people turning to foodbanks to stave-off hunger, the North Ayrshire Foodbank, based at the Church of the Nazerene in Ardrossan’s Glasgow Street, is to raise desperately needed funds by holding a Fun Run on Sunday, June 1st.

The event will be held at St Matthew’s Academy in Saltcoats between 12.00pm and 4.30pm, with what organisers describe as “a day jam-packed with entertainment” in addition to Fun Run.

A Spokesperson for the Foodbank encouraged locals to “Get a team of family and friends together and walk, trot or run your way around the track to raise funds for a wonderful cause – and have a great time doing it.”

To take part in the Fun Run and receive a North Ayrshire Foodbank medal, teams or individuals must register – by e-mailing using the subject line ‘Marafun sponsorship form’ – and each participant must commit to raising at least £10.00.

The North Ayrshire Foodbank helps fight child hunger and provides food for local people plunged into crisis.
