Members of a female running club in Worthing celebrated its fifth birthday with a charity raffle for St Barnabas House hospice.

Foxy Ladies Running Club started in 2013 as a Thursday morning social run group with just seven members and it has grown to more than 120 regular runners.

Group leader Julia Griggs organised a charity raffle in memory of her friend who passed away earlier this year, raising £1,500 for the hospice.

All prizes were donated or secured by members of the club, including haircuts, pamper baskets, a signed Brighton and Hove Albion shirt, a free day of childcare, personal training sessions and a slow cooker among many others.

Julia originally ran the London Marathon after training alone when her children were at pre-school and now runs more than 20 miles a week and takes five Foxy sessions.
