Garstang’s annual charity run went off without a hitch as almost 100 people took to the streets.

This year’s seven mile 
‘Garstang Gallop’ supported the charity Facial Palsy UK after two members found their son Orrin suffered with the condition.

Danielle Burrows and Toby Fisher had Orrin earlier this year and thanked everyone who took part as all the money raised went to the charity.

Sometimes known as facial paralysis, this is a condition 
resulting from damage, 
absence or impairment of the facial nerve supplying the 
muscles of facial function and expression.

It can affect blinking, closing the eye for sleep, eating and drinking, speech, smiling and frowning.

Racers registered at 
Garstang Sports Club before beginning the race at The 
Royal Oak at 11am.

Bridge Street was closed for the race as runners made their way around the scenic course through rural areas around the town before coming back into town.
