We are really pleased to launch the Redway Runners activity info for the Food Bank Run February 2023, we are a community running club and keen to help those in the community that might need extra help

The Food Bank Run is a new idea that is gaining pace in 2023. Created by Hampshire based running club, Fareham Running Club, they are encouraging every club, group and food bank to link up and create their own Food Bank Run.

Please help us and help people of Milton Keynes who need the most help, by donating food items that they most need

What will Redway Runners be doing:
During February we will be collecting food items they want for the Milton Keynes Food bank and doing a big food delivery on Monday afternoon 27 February

How you can help
