FUN runners are being urged to hand in the money they raised during a gruelling challenge.

Thousands of runners took to the Promenade in May as Beaverbrooks hosted the 30th Blackpool 10k Fun Run to raise funds for the NSPCC.

But organisers have still not received the donations pledged to the charity.

Kathryn Taylor, NSPCC corporate fundraising manager for the charity in Blackpool said: “We are extremely grateful to the thousands of runners who took part in the Beaverbrooks 10k Fun Run to support the NSPCC.

“Now the big day is over we are asking our supporters to take one last step – by returning the money they have raised so we can continue our work in helping to support vulnerable children and young people across Blackpool and the UK.

“Through the money raised, you will be playing a part in helping to end child cruelty.

“Every contribution to the charity really does make a difference to the children who turn to the NSPCC and ChildLine for help and support.

“We couldn’t do it without the backing of our volunteers and the public.”

>> To pay in your money, please send cheques made to NSPCC registered charity to: The NSPCC North West fundraising team, Quays Reach, 14 Carolina Way, Salford, Manchester M50 2ZY.
