A charity will host a fun run to help raise funds for families with sick children.

The Rhys Daniels Trust has organised the five-mile run through Epping Forest for the eighteenth year running.

Last year the event raised £1,800 for the charities ‘Home from Home’ appeal, which provides accommodation for families with sick children who have to be treated far from home.

The event is set to take place at Epping Sports Centre in Essex on Sunday, May 11.

The trust will celebrate their 20th anniversary later this year.
