A ST Helens charity is making an urgent appeal for support – with the help of a team of local glamour girls!

The HoneyRose Foundation needs as many people as possible to take part in the St Helens 10K run on Sunday, March 20, on their behalf.

Nicknamed the HoneyRose Honeys, the team will be pounding the streets in support of the foundation.

Lynn Duffy, who founded the HoneyRose Foundation in 2003 in honour of two of her friends who died, said: “We hope to encourage as many people as possible to give up a little time to take part in such a worthwhile event.

“It doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or a novice runner, everyone who enters the race will be helping to bring real happiness to those facing the stress and uncertainty of their illness.”

Proceeds from the event will be distributed between a number of local charities.

Every sports team or business that takes part on behalf of the HoneyRose Foundation will also receive a personalised signed picture of the Honeys.

Anyone interested in taking part can call into the fund-raising office on Hall Street in St Helens town centre or call 01744 451919. The deadline for entries on March 13.
