Twins Claire and Courtney Heslop, aged nine, are putting the FUN into fun run by organising a sponsored onesie pyjama charity run around The National Bowl.

The event, on May 30, will see onesie wearers skipping, rolling, walking, running or even dancing around the 0.6 mile course, in aid of the Henry Allen Trust.

The twins, otherwise known as Henry’s Helpers wanted to raise awareness of the Trust which raises funds and offers support and guidance for families who have lost a child to cancer.

Proud dad Ben Heslop said: “Claire and Courtney adored Henry and wanted to do something fun toraise awareness of the Trust.

“They suggested a onesie/pyjama run and, to be honest, it was such a crazy idea we thought let’s do this.”

Local musician Jamie Stimpson, who hosted the Onesie Challenge inNovember for the Henry Allen World Record attempt will get the party started with a high energy and fun warm up and will entertain the crowds to keep spirits high and faces smiling.

The event is open to people of all ages and abilities with families welcome to bring along a picnic although refreshments will be available.

The event schedule starts with registration at 10.30am, warm up at 11am and the fun run kicking off at midday.
