Fun run was ‘a wonderful community event’

Jimmy Cricket started the race held to mark his 70th birthday

More than 100 runners – young and old – took part in the 5K charity fun run marking Jimmy Cricket’s 70th birthday.

They tackled two laps of the picturesque Cowm Reservoir in Whitworth, Lancashire, on Sunday.

The event was in aid of Francis House Children’s Hospice, which is based in south Manchester.

Legendary Irish comedian Jimmy, a long-standing supporter of the hospice, had originally been approached by Rochdale-based fundraiser Andy O’Sullivan about the prospect of a birthday race.
