We support local charities and are delighted to have partnered with Jigsaw. Jigsaw supports children and young people who have been bereaved or are facing the loss of a loved one, across Surrey, Mid Sussex and West Kent. As a child, losing a parent can be a devastating and life changing experience. This brilliant charity help children to cope, manage their grief, and start to rebuild their lives.
We like to support our community by getting involved
in local events and taking part in activities to support good causes in the
town. A number of our club members have participated in "plogging"
where we do a litter pick to clean up the local area. We also annually run to and
attend the remembrance service at the Airmen's grave each November to lay a
wreath and donate to the poppy fund.
As a club we are also passionate about mental health
so we collect money for the charity MIND twice a year to help support all the
brilliant work they do to make sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone. We try to also assist this by providing
Mental Health runs on a few occasions throughout the year with a free and open
invite for anyone to come to ‘run and talk’.
We are always happy to support local causes so if you have a project or event you are working on and would like to speak to us about ways we can help, please just drop us a line at: Media@eastgrinsteadrunners.co.uk.
