Friends of Barham Library members Cllr Paul Lorber, Peter Corcoran and Syed Shah put their best foot forward
Library campaigners joined in the fun on an annual charity run to raise funds for their community reading room.
Fresh from marathon exploits in Bratislava, Friends of Barham Library members Cllr Paul Lorber, Peter Corcoran and Syed Shah took part in the 10km run and walk.
Children as young as three through to participants in their nineties took part in the Annual Challenge at BAP Shri Swaminarayan Mandir – known as Neasden temple, in Brentfield Road, Neasden, on Sunday.
More than 3,000 adults and children ran, jogged or walked the 10km from the temple to King Edward VII Park in Park Lane, Wembley, where they did two laps before returning.
Cllr Lorber, who was raising money for FOBL, said: “As always the Swaminarayan Temple organised a fantastic event.”
The run also raised money for BAPS Charities and its national beneficiary partner, KIDS, as well as various other charities and good causes.”
