AN athletics store has given its backing to a local charity’s annual fundraising race which takes place around Chatsworth Estate.

Decathlon has teamed up with Helen’s Trust – a charity which provides support to allow people with incurable illnesses to stay in their own homes – to promote the 10km and Fun Run which take place on May 22.

The chain will be hosting an in-store event on Saturday February 19 encouraging customers to sign up for the race, and will also be making a donation to the organisation for every Deefuz Tee-shirt sold on the day.

Mike Senior, from Helen’s Trust, urged people to take part in the runs.

He saidd: “We’re very grateful for Decathlon’s support in helping spread the word about our big annual fundraiser.”
