Pig Racing Brings Home The Bacon

A great night was had by all on Friday 23rd February at Southowram Cricket Club for the Pig Racing evening. A fantastic £206 was raised for the club including a very generous donation by Will Stewart of his winnings in the grand final race. Thanks to Angela Cowton for organising, and to Peter and all the team at Southowam for making us welcome and putting on a great evening.  We will be running this ever popular event again.

Halifax Harriers Foodbank Run To Sainsbury’s – Helping The Local Community.

Halifax Harriers took part in a Food Bank Run on the evening of Tuesday 6th February. Setting off from Spring Hall, they ran to Sainsbury's as part of their normal weekly training runs where they stopped off to donate food to the Halifax Community Fridge and then continued their run. 

The Halifax Community Fridge, is open daily enabling residents and businesses to share surplus food and for anyone to help themselves to quality food that would otherwise be wasted. Unlike food banks, the Halifax Community Fridge is not means-tested - it is available to anyone. It is also discreetly situated and mostly unmanned, to avoid any stigma its users may otherwise feel.

The Food Bank Run is a nationwide campaign gaining pace and created off the back of a run started in 2018 by Fareham Running Club in Hampshire.
February is a key time of the year where families are hardest hit. Christmas has come and gone, a time where families feel the pressure to put food on the table and spend money on their children, plus there is a pause on some household bills.

Then February arrives and suddenly the bills arrive at a time when cash is even harder to come by. This is why the month of February is such an important time of the year and why we’re focusing on supporting Food Bank Runs.

The Harriers felt that as a club we had to do something, and decided to take part in this initiative.
