Warminster town smashes targets
Throughout the month of February, players from Warminster Town’s first team, ladies team and the reserves have been running and adding up the miles. They aimed to run virtually from Weymouth Street to FC Barcelona, a distance of just over 1000 miles during February. They did well and passed this distance with time to spare.
All this running was not just to keep fit, but to raise funds for the Warminster and District Foodbank, with a goal of raising £500. This target too was smashed! A total of £1385 has been generously donated.
Owen Bartley who came up with the idea to raise funds this way is delighted with the response of the players and donors and wishes to thank everyone for their time and kind donations. He added, “The foodbank relies on donations of food, and with the increase in demand due to the pandemic has been spending an additional £400 per month. The sum raised will go a long way to helping those in need during these difficult times.”
