The Honiara Hash House Harriers (HHHH) club has donated $3,500 to the San Isidro Care centre in north western Guadalcanal.
The funds were raised following a fundraising event last year.
Receiving the donation on behalf of San Isidro, representative Sister Mary said the funds will be used to assist with rebuilding some classrooms that are getting old and rundown.
Honiara Hash House Harriers spokesman Andrew Fraser said, “This was a great turnout for a great cause.
“We thank all our members for supporting our fundraising events and the group did a lovely walk and run followed by a bbq and social time with teachers and students at the school on Easter Monday.”
Hash House Harriers is the largest international walking and running organisation in the world with almost 2000 chapters worldwide, and they carry out fundraising events from time to time to support worthy causes in their community.
Honiara Hash House Harriers is a friendly walking and running group that meets at 5pm every Monday evening in a different part of Honiara and is a wonderful mix of local Solomon Islanders and expatriates.
“Everyone is welcome to join the walk or run, regardless of their level of fitness and we typically have well over 40 Hashers each week, including children.
“You can find us on Facebook under Honiara Hash House Harriers so come along to see if it’s something you’d like to add to your experience here in the Solomon’s.
“Look out for their next fundraising event in a few months time.”
