ANDOVER Foodbank’s annual run to help those in crisis is drawing closer to the starting line.

Lake Run is taking place on Sunday, September 16, with town celebrity Katie Piper opening the event.

Last year, more than 400 runners entered the 5k and 10k events, and organisers hope there will be even more sporting enthusiasts come forward this time around.

A 2k fun run will start at 9am at Charlton Lakes Sports Centre followed by a 5k and 10k at 10.30am.
