A charity run for the Armed Forces has raised more than £1,500.
The run2remember, formerly known as the Poppy Run, saw 98 competitors complete the 5k run around Baxenden on November 1.
Michael Hughes, who has organised the event on behalf of the Royal British Legion, said: “It was a fantastic day all round, everyone said how much of a good time they had.
“We’re not sure of the final amount raised but we made more than £1,000 in ticket sales and sponsorship has raised more than £500 for the Accrington Royal British Legion. Everyone who took part said they would like to run again next year which is great for the event.”
He added: “I would just like to say a big thank you to the Mayor Marlene Haworth who attended and MP Graham Jones who launched the run. Also a big thank you to all those who made the effort and turned out on the day.”
The British Legion event raises funds for the ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
