Sewell Group has announced it will be supporting 260 runners, acting as a ‘safe haven’ for Fitmums and Friends members.
The new community partnership means that, if any member of the neighbourhood running group gets into difficulty whilst out running, they’re able to visit their local Sewell forecourt and know they will be welcomed and supported.
The independent fuel and convenience retailer, Sewell on the go, will provide a safe shelter, water, access toilet facilities and telephone access should any member need it. The forecourts will also be used as catch up points for the groups.
Sam Barlow, Founder of Fitmums and Friends said:
“It’s great to have the support from a local retailer. Everyone knows where their local garage is it’s comforting for our runners to know, if they do become distressed or feel unsafe, they’re able to pop into a Sewell on the go store and will receive the support they need.”
Patrick Sewell, Sewell on the go Managing Director said:
“As part of the Sewell Foundation we support local causes that matter to the communities we work in. Fitmums and friends is a great way for people to get out, exercise and socialise. Our fuel and convenience stores are in the hearts of communities across Hull and East Riding, making them the ideal place for the groups to stop off, fill up their water bottles and shelter if the weather takes a turn for the worst.”
