Brentwood Running Club’s chosen charity partner is Saint Francis Hospice
We support Saint Francis Hospice in as many ways as possible and have good communications with their staff via Committee member Lynsey Prentice. Many Trotters and their families have had first-hand experience of the excellent work done by the Hospice on a number of levels.
Our main fundraiser each year is the London Marathon. The Club is allocated three guaranteed entries via our UKA Affiliation and eight places for volunteering at the previous year’s race. Three places are awarded by the Committee to outstanding Club members, the other eight being drawn out of the hat once members have received their rejection slip
In the last two years Club members have raised £23,000 for Saint Francis Hospice and over £68,000 for charities in general
Our second fundraising event is the Club’s annual 10K race, held in July. As a result of the hard work and dedication of Club members, the Club makes an annual donation to the Hospice from the proceeds of the 10K; this being £2,000 in 2017
