RUNNERS are invited to help a children’s charity raise £1m to build a holiday house.

The Joshua Tree fun run is the latest event designed to raise funds for the home, which is to be built in Sandiway.

The event, held at Marbury Park, near Northwich on April 24, includes a 2.5k and 5k race for runners of all ages and abilities.

Joshua Tree manager Jo Pritchard said: “The holiday house and support centre in Sandiway will enable children from the North West and beyond, with very low immunity, to have a much-needed, free, short break away from home and hospitals with their family.”
