THE Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has donated 600 mattresses, 800 blankets and consumables to more than 30 charities around Pietermaritzburg.

The donation forms part of the Comrades Marathon underprivileged runners programme.

The programme assisted underprivileged athletes by providing them with accommodation, food, ablution facilities, mattresses, blankets, entertainment and transport to allow them to compete in the race.

On Monday the mattresses, blankets and excess consumables were donated to charities identified by Community Chest.

Aroo Naidoo, the executive director for the Pietermaritzburg and District Community Chest, said he appreciates the partnership with the CMA.
