Items of cereal, coffee, tinned meat or vegetables, crisps and toiletries can be dropped off at:

  • 15 Kilby Avenue, Lichfield
  • 24 Purcell Avenue, WS13 7PJ
  • 28 Ryknild Street, Boley Park, Lichfield.
  • 101 Walsall Road, Lichfield.
  • 34 Foseway, Lichfield

  • The Lakeside Bistro, Beacon Park (opening hours only)

A spokesperson for Lichfield Parkrun said:

“We’re working with our friends Helping Each Other to raise awareness and get some much needed donations to help those in desperate need during these difficult times.

“Walk, jog or run 5km today, Saturday or Sunday and drop off an item at one of our collection points around the city if you can.

“Top points if you manage to get to all the drop off locations!”
