The Committee have recently agreed to a proposal to support the Basic Food Bank, which is local to us, having bases in Motherwell, Wishaw, Airdrie and Bellshill.
We will be encouraging runners at the monthly Time Trials to bring along items of non-perishable foods, toiletries, nappies, etc. You can bring as many, or as little items as you choose, and Elaine will make sure these are collected on the night and dropped off at the local base in Motherwell.
We will put reminders out on Facebook and the website on the lead up to the Time Trial, but it is hoped that you will all support this venture, and help those less fortunate than ourselves, much of the time through no fault of their own.
This is also an excellent way to get rid of all those unwanted boxes of chocolates, biscuits and selection boxes that youâ€™re never going to eat anyway because youâ€™re a fine tuned athlete…simply put them away, and bring them down to Januaryâ€™s Time Trial on 10 January.
