A GROUP of Northwich parkrun volunteers have raised more than £230 for charity by selling traffic cone bobble hats.

They came up with the idea to keep the memory of Terry Murphy alive, who sadly passed away in August last year after falling ill while taking part in the parkrun held at Carey Park.

The proceeds are donated to North West Air Ambulance Charity, who came to the aid of the former town councillor and football manager on the day.

Among the group is parkrun director John Kleiser, who said that the hats are a great way to give something back to such a good cause.

“Northwich parkrun is famous for its cone at the marshal point that runners have to run around,” he said.

“We decided to make hats that look like the cone to bring everyone together following Terry’s passing.

“It’s good to raise money for North West Air Ambulance Charity who were called on the day and it’s great to see plenty of people, both runners and marshals wearing the hats on the parkrun course.”

John added: “It is absolutely brilliant to have raised so much for such a good cause and to keep Terry’s memory alive.”

Northwich parkrun is a free and timed event held every Saturday, where participants can walk, run or jog around the 5k course.

Open to all ages and abilities, everyone is welcome to take part.
