Last week we were at the home of Blackburn Rovers to celebrate the contributions and achievements of volunteers in the north west region. We caught up with the fantastic Nicola Harvey and Louise McLaren from Park View 4 U RunTogether group, winners of the Contribution to Running Award.
A RunTogether group for the whole community

Contribution to Running award winners
It is not just running that this RunTogether group focuses on, but it also offers an inclusive experience for all in their local community completely free of charge.
They have members with dementia, learning disabilities, cancer, heart conditions and mental health challenges, and their sessions are adapted and suitable for all.
Whether they are delivering armchair aerobics, supporting foodbanks or raising money for local charities, Park View 4 U are at the centre of their community and are a real asset to Lytham.
