A charity run in memory of a local campaigner raised over £10,000 for the Luton Foodbank recently.

Mum-of-four Amra Khan passed away two years ago after falling unwell on her way back from completing her Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca, leaving behind four children.

The run took place in Wardown Park (on 28 September) and featured over fifty runners.

A family message read: “Our mother was beloved to many, and during her life, she participated in several charity events.

“One of the charities close to her heart was Luton Foodbank, and by holding this event we are carrying on her work in helping people less fortunate.

“We were pleased to share the day with so family and friends.”

The amount will go towards the charity’s ongoing work in the town ensuring that no-one goes hungry.

Luton Foodbank Project Manager Salma Khan said: “Amra was a keen supporter of the Luton Foodbank. This event was more than a charity event; it is part of her legacy for Amra’s children.

“We are pleased that her family and friends are able to carry on her good work with this charitable initiative.”
