Medals and trophies for runners taking part in a fundraising event have been donated to the organising charity.
The medals will be presented to people who complete either a 10 kilometre or five kilometre run in aid of The Donna Louise Children's Hospice in Stoke-on-Trent.
Charity supporter Andrea Brain, whose daughter Esther used the hospice before she died in 2008, arranged the donation of all the medals and trophies with help from a team at Longton Trophy Centre, also in Stoke-on-Trent.
Owners Steve and Linda Wright, along with Janet Wilshaw, contacted suppliers on behalf of Andrea, to ask for their support. Now, the event has been backed by Dec Tek, based in Wales, which has provided the centres for the medals, Leicester-based Glenway, provided the trophies and the medals, with ribbons donated from Oldbury company, Goodwill.
The runs take place on May 6 at Trentham Gardens. It is the eighth year the charity has held such an event and this year it is sponsored by bet365bingo.com. Places are still available by calling 01782 654444.
