GALLERY: Rotor Run fun in Stevenage

PEOPLE donned their running shoes for a good cause on Sunday, to raise money for the Hertfordshire Air Ambulance in the second annual Rotor Run.

The fun race, which was sponsored by the Comet newspaper, saw competitors tackling the 5K course in Fairlands Valley Park, Stevenage. Many were kitted out in their complimentary running t-shirts.

Before the race, runners were treated to an appearance from the Herts Air Ambulance, and children were entertained by attractions including a bouncy castle and climbing wall.

Coreys Mill Sainsbury’s also played their part in the fundraising campaign last weekend, asking staff to pay �1 to wear red for the day, while shoppers were given the chance to win a �200 shop by entering a raffle.

The air ambulance costs around �130,000 per month to operate and relies heavily on donations to run.
