We are a team raising money for shoes for refugees in Calais and northern France, by running the Virgin 10K on 15th July. Some of us are runners, some of us are decidedly not, but we think this is a really important cause.

We have all been over to northern France to volunteer, we have seen the dreadful conditions with our own eyes. Please help Jess, Sarah, Caroline, Hope and Christine in our endeavours.

We are so grateful to you for your support. By supporting us, you will know that every single penny donated will be spent on footwear.

Shoes are desperately needed. Refugees walk miles every day to get to food distributions and water, sleeping outdoors every night. At the end of a very hard journey, their foot health is poor. Thank you so, so, much for supporting our cause.

Event details

Virgin Sport British 10K

We will be running the Virgin Sport British 10K on July 15th .

Each pair of trainers costs £9 and £1800 will buy 200 pairs. The more we raise, the more people will have comfortable, dry, healthy feet.

We work with Care4Calais who provide much needed help to people fleeting conflict and torture. We will be going over to Calais at the end of July to distribute these shoes to the people who need them.
