Team WHA take on the Warrington 10k to raise funds for Warrington Foodbank

12 Oct 2018

A trio of WHA staff put their best foot forward to run in the Warrington 10K for our charity of the year, Warrington Foodbank.

Chief Executive David Cummins, Finance Assistant Angela Butterworth and Money Advice Officer Steven Higham all took part, raising a total of £208 – and all finishing within 1hr 9 minutes.

Angela said: “The atmosphere was fantastic and it was perfect running weather. I felt so proud to be raising money for such a worthy cause.”

The challenge formed part of a range of activities WHA is undertaking to support the charity, including hosting foodbank donation points at our central office and all of our sheltered accommodations schemes, as well as a tuck shop to raise cash.

Steven added: “Running for Warrington Foodbank was a huge motivator, I meet people from all walks of life who face food poverty right here in Warrington through my role as Money Advice Officer – it is a real eye opener – so it was great to take on the run to further help people in the borough.”

Warrington Foodbank has reported an increase of 17% in the last year on the food distributed in the borough (a total of 80 tonnes) – with more than a third of the food going to children.
