Recorder reporters took part in a 5k run this week to help raise money for a children's charity.
Hayley Anderson and April Roach opted in for the Step2IT Havering 5K which took place yesterday, Wednesday, June 13, at Raphael Park, Romford, in aid of First Step, Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch.
Around 170 people took part in the run, sponsored by insurance company Grove and Dean, for First Step which is a charity that helps children with special needs and disabilities to reach their full potential.
Michelle Mitchell from First Step said: “It was a wonderful atmosphere, really well organised and Raphel Park was an excellent venue.
“We are so grateful to Grove and Dean for their commitment to First Step, the many corporate and local business supporters and, of course, all the volunteers, runners, walkers and dogs!
“First Step relies on the generosity of our community and, on behalf of everyone here at the charity, we extend our sincere thanks.”
