Runstoppable, a Norfolk business supporting local runners, has raised over £800 for two children’s charities in Norfolk. £410 has been handed over to both Norfolk child bereavement charity Nelson’s Journey and Red Balloon Learner Centre. Runstoppable, based in Norwich, offers ‘MOT’ assessments to runners. Each Runner’s MOT in 2019 led to a donation to the charities. Running coach Kyle Brooks, owner of the business, said: “I know that these two charities are making a real difference to young people locally who’ve been through really difficult experiences, and I’m very pleased that my clients have been so enthusiastic in supporting their cause. Charities need the support of their communities to continue their work, and there are many ways in which businesses can help.“
