A six-member team from a property developer in Axminster, have taken part in a marathon to raise funds.

Axminster Property Ltd faced the tough terrain of the Jurassic Coast Ultra Challenge on May 18 and 19, raising an impressive £1642 for the charity Nourish Axminster.

Nourish, is a small charity, which delivers home-cooked, nutritionally sound meals to community members, who struggle to feed themselves and their families.

The team undertook a gruelling 100k two-day trek, kick-starting from Corfe Castle to Bridport, not only as a team-building initiative but mainly to support the charity.

Nourish also offers food support to The Hub at Pippins, helping people in Axminster, who are fighting an addiction.

Engaging with the Devon and Cornwall Police, the charity provides 'Picnics in the Park', an initiative that allows them to feed children during school holidays.

They work closely with different food providers, ensuring everyone they support has access to help from other groups.

Nourish, managed by two volunteers, Karen and Mary, were awarded the Robin Cross Citizen of the Year award from Axminster Town Council, for their dedicated service to the community.

Karen, the founder of Nourish, said: "We are only too aware of how the rungs of our personal ladders can snap and we find ourselves in need of support in order to climb back up the ladder.

"It can happen to anyone and Nourish is there to offer that helping hand to those who are struggling."

Through a combined effort of GoFundMe, other donations, and a coffee morning, the group managed to raise over £1,300.
