A group of runners have donated £2k to a dementia cafe.

RUNNERS who volunteered at a Halstead road race have donated thousands of pounds to a support group helping those with dementia.

Grange Farm and Dunmow Runners hosted a water station at the Halstead and Essex Marathon and took part in the Felstead 10K and the Stebbing 10 to raise funds for a chosen charity.

They presented the Dunmow Dementia Cafe with a £2,000 donation as a result of their fundraising activities, which will help cover ongoing expenses and fund a day trip to the coast later this summer.
