More charities are set to benefit from the Bupa Great Manchester Run after a group of young volunteers collected nearly a tonne of clothing during the event.
Dozens of student volunteers and scouts collected 123 bags of jackets, jumpers and hoodies weighing a staggering 800kg - the weight of a large cow - left at the roadside by runners setting off from Manchester city centre during the 10k race.
A record 40,000 runners took part in the event on Sunday May 20, raising an estimated £3m for charities.
Now, more worthy causes have benefited from the event, after the collected clothing was given to the Barnado's, which works to transform the lives of vulnerable children throughout the UK, and which will distribute them to people in need across Greater Manchester.
Councillor Nigel Murphy, Manchester City Council's Executive Member for the Environment, said: "Runners taking part in the event raised a huge amount for charities and, in the spirit of the event, our young volunteers also did an excellent job collecting clothing which will help people in the region who have a genuine need.
"I want to say a big thank you to everyone who guaranteed this wonderful event was also a great day for recycling and we hope they'll join us again next year to make it even more of a success."
