Press Release: Twilight Runway Challenge
Volunteers sport their running gear to raise over £400 for Citizens Advice Rushmoor at Twilight Runway Challenge
The popular Twilight Runway Challenge – The Community Matters Partnership Project’s flagship fundraising event – returned on Saturday 16th September, encouraging people to get active whilst helping to raise money for local charitable causes.
This annual event has proven to be enjoyable for the whole family and each year helps raise thousands for local causes like ours. It attracts a wide variety of participants, from people looking to get fit, taking part in fancy dress, or having fun with friends, family, or colleagues.
Citizens Advice Rushmoor volunteers David Levey and Carole Evans, alongside members of their families, took part and raise an amazing £420.50 for the charity.
Calum Stewart, Deputy Chief Officer at Citizens Advice Rushmoor said “With the cost of living crisis far from over, our charity needs the resources to be able to do more to support struggling households now and during the months to come. These vital funds will help us reach even more people across Aldershot and Farnborough who need urgent help.
Thank you to David, Carole, and their families – on behalf of everyone here at Citizens Advice Rushmoor – for their fantastic efforts, and to all those who generously supported them.”
Tracy Jarvis, Founder of CMPP added “CMPP is all about community and collaboration, and our Twilight Runway Challenge embodies this. We are proud that this flagship fundraising event helps to raise vital funds for charities like Citizens Advice Rushmoor.”
