Jo Gray, one of our members, is setting up a prison Parkrun and would be really grateful if any Striders could donate any unwanted trainers (in reasonable condition) from size 5 upwards – especially male trainers.
Prison Parkruns are a new initiative for Parkrun. It is an exciting venture where there are not only opportunities for running but for volunteering too. These are skills that are transferable to the community and will support a reduction in re-offending. If you want to see more information about this please visit the Parkrun website (http://www.parkrun.org.uk – see blog).
If you have any trainers you are willing to donate please bring them along to club nights on Tuesday or Thursday this week for Jo to collect and put to good use. Any donations will be greatly appreciated by Jo.
