EASTBOURNE Jobcentre Plus colleagues running group Sole Mates has been running to raise money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice throughout November.

Cliff Harris from the group said: ‘Sole Mates was founded as a way of Jobcentre colleagues engaging in a shared experience during lockdown and also improving our mental and physical wellbeing.

‘As we neared six months of running together, we wanted do something (while maintaining government guidelines) and decided to set ourselves a goal to run as many miles as possible during November and raise some money for a good cause.

‘St Wilfrid’s Hospice was an easy choice. It is at the very heart of Eastbourne and its great work has touched so many people in the community. The Jobcentre is also at the heart of the community and, like St Wilfrid’s, we have been open throughout this year to offer help and support for those who really need it during these difficult times.’
