TWO charities gratefully received £425 each from athletes on Saturday.

The sums were the proceeds of the Ready Steady 5k fun run in May, which saw a record 248 join the event organised by Rugby & Northampton AC, and supported by Rugby Round Table, Rugby Borough Council and principle sponsors The Running Shop and George & Company Chartered Surveyors.

Receiving cheques were Rugby charity ROSA, which supports survivors of rape and sexual abuse and NOWZAD, which helps soliders to rescue animals in Afghanistan and be reunited with them at home, or to rehouse them locally from their shelter in Kabul.
