Hastings half marathon – counting down to race day. The runners raising money for local causes

Hastings In Focus has been meeting some of the runners taking part in Hastings Half Marathon who will be raising money for great local charities, watch the film and hear all that they have to say.


Matt Badham is putting his best foot forward to raise much needed cash for St Michaels Hospice. It’s a cause very dear to Matt’s heart as the hospice provided support for his mother in the final few days of her life and helped the rest of the family through a very difficult time.

Andrew Battley is running the Hastings Half marathon for the seventh time and wants to raise cash for a charity he helped establish and still works for. It’s the BAT Foundation a charity that wants to showcase the benefits of table tennis in the treatment of Alzheimers and be able to provide equipment to those who can benefit.

First time runners Robert Burns, Kieran Dawson and Alex Kingshott are hoping to raise a lot of cash for the Judy Beard Unit at Conquest hospital. Kieran’s partner Sophie received treatment for breast cancer at the unit last year, getting the all-clear in October. Now Kieran and Sophie’s brother Alex and brother-in-law Robert want to say thanks. If you want to help them do that then click here.
