Not all Mighty Greens are runners. 
Jeanina Puckey, the Sidmouth Running Club’s Auditor, recognised that many people are struggling through this pandemic and wanted to help them out.  
So, very generously, she decided to forego her annual fee from the Club for this year and asked that it be donated to the local food bank. The Club decided it was such a nice gesture and an excellent cause that they would match Jeanina's donation.  
Sid Valley Food Bank, based at Manstone Youth Club, seemed the obvious choice, an organisation that supported around 60 local families at its busiest.  
Tim Clay, Treasurer of Sidmouth Running Club, handed over a cheque for £200 to Renee Forth, Chair of the Trustees for Sid Valley Food Bank.  
Renee thanked Tim for the donation, adding that the Food Bank was extremely grateful for all the support it received from local businesses and organisations.
