Over one hundred people turned out for the second annual Rabbit Run and Bunny Bustle on 26 April, organised by disability charity Livability, on Clapham Common.

Attired in full rabbit costume, competitors either ran a 5k, 10k or 15k route around the blustery common.

They had raised sponsorship for Livability, the UK’s largest Christian charity, which helps disabled adults across the country in its care homes and with community engagement.

The charity aims to put an end to social exclusion by helping disabled people to attain independence and reach their full potential as individuals and in the world of work.

Formed in 2007 by the merger of the Shaftesbury Society and John Grooms, Livability now has 17 care homes around the country supporting around 300 disabled adults.

The event on Clapham Common was organised by Anna-Karien Drost, events fundraising officer at Livability, who said the event was a great opportunity to publicise the charity and the work it does.

The Rabbit Run and Bunny Bustle has already raised £3,400 for Livability, with more sponsorship money still to come in.
