A group of runners laced up their trainers on a cold Sunday to raise money for the victims of the floods in Cubria and Yorkshire.

Members of Skegness and District Running Club pounded the hilly pavements around Old Bolingbroke at the weekend to raise £355.

Club members from Skegness, Boston and Spilsby were supported by runners from other Lincolnshire clubs, including Mablethorpe, Louth, Caistor, Sleaford and Lincoln. All took part in social runs of varying distances and speeds to suit all levels of ability.

A spokesman for the Skegness and District club said: “The weather stayed fine and all the runners were back after an hour-and-a-half in the wonderful Lincolnshire hills to partake in hot drinks, cake, chocolate and biscuits – just the ticket after a run.”

In total, £355 was raised for Sleaford and District Round Table charitable trust’s JustGiving page, prompting members to praise the ‘amazing effort’ of runners.

Donations can still be made to help with the clean up after the devastation.
