Despite the challenging year it has been for many, the giving spirit didn't go away for the 14th Vestrum Women's Fun Run.

The event was postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions to October 4, but it meant it was able to be another success.

Bunbury Runners Club president Fiona Collins said the women of all ages were enthusiastic to be involved in the event which was held on a glorious day.

Each year the proceeds from the event go to a chosen charity, with this year being no different.

The South West Women's Refuge and Waratah received $3,000 each.

As well as the money, the club also received donated pyjamis and underwear which went to the South West Women's Refuge.

Refuge chief executive Ali White said the organisation relied heavy on donations.

"A great big thank you for the donations," she said.

"We can't do what we do without your help."

She said often women and their children would arrive with just the clothes on their back, so the clothing makes a huge difference.
