April 15th dawned sunny and bright – perfect weather for a marathon! The atmosphere in Preston Park was electric; 8,000 runners coping with pre-race nerves supported by around 2,000 friends and family. Our thanks go to Martin Still, Juliet Smith and Michelle Hood who ran for Off The Fence.
As last year, Off The Fence, alongside The Worthing Homeless Project, were given the opportunity to collect the outer layers of clothing discarded by the runners. We collected a whopping 47 sacks of jumpers, sweat shirts and tracksuit bottoms which are currently keeping our washing machine very busy! We are so grateful for this significant gift which will keep our clients well clothed in the coming months.
