Ben Rhydding residents to run marathon for unpaid carers

Households of St John’s Road in Ben Rhydding are running another marathon on Saturday, 24 April, raising money for the charity Carers’ Resource, which supports unpaid carers.

Last April residents of the street came together running 124 laps of the street and raised over £10,000 for the charity.

Community Fundraiser and resident Claire Macina said: "The money we raise will support unpaid carers in Bradford including Ilkley. We support around 200 Ilkley carers.

"Coronavirus has exacerbated what was already a dire situation for unpaid carers, many of whom were at breaking point even before the pandemic struck. Please support St Johns Road and donate via www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stjohnsroad2streetmarathon

"Any local businesses wanting to get involved and sponsor a mile please email cmacina@carersresource.org"
