Congratulations to Liz Cox and Peter Eates from Thurrock parkrun for winning the Thurrock Council Healthy Living Award for 2018.

 

They were nominated for their work in enhancing Thurrock parkrun by gaining funding for and obtaining an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), establishing a pop-up café via volunteers, getting work completed on toilet refurbishments and for their efforts in encouraging people of all ages and abilities to get involved in walking, jogging, running and volunteering.

 

Liz and Peter also helped the Community First Responders get funding (who are regular attendees and did the AED training). They were announced as the winners of the Healthy Living Awards at the Civic Ceremony hosted by the Mayor of Thurrock.
