A group of Midlands referees have been raising money throughout the second lockdown for Food Banks in the Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry and Worcestershire Areas – and have raised over £2,600 so far!
They did this by running a total of 1612km between 16 runners. A total of 226 individual runs were completed, averaging 7.13km per run. The quickest individual to 100km was 9 days 15 hours and the furthest distance covered in a single run was 26.52km.
Lewis Smith, Level 5 Referee, said: “It was an amazing opportunity to raise money and awareness for a great cause, accompanied with some top lads.”
Aaron Ford, Level 4 (Step 5-6 List) Referee, added: “It was fantastic to be part of a rewarding innovative that helped support local food bank communities in difficult times. This also helped me personally through lockdown; both physically and mentally.”
