Braunstone parkrun does Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day raises cash to transform the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa. 

Projects range from restoring the sight of children in Africa to giving isolated older people in the UK the support they need to enjoy their lives.

Red Nose Day is on Friday 18th March and, for us, this marks the start of a Red Nose day Challenge - a 4-week period ending on Saturday 16th April - in which anyone attending Braunstone parkrun may set themselves a challenge to raise money to help the charity's vital work.

There'll be more news about this Saturday and we'll also be posting details here as well as on our Facebook page at
