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. In the summer of 2019 a number of our club members participated in "plogging" where we did a litter pick to clean up the local area. We also attended the remembrance service at the Airmen's grave on the 11th November 2019.
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.
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.
