Raising money for
On the 14th July 2018 it will be 10 years since Catherine passed away. To mark the anniversary I wanted to raise money for a charity she would have supported herself had she still been with us (rather than a charity that reminded us of the reason why she isn't with us anymore). The one we chose on her behalf is Home-Start Spelthorne. Catherine received help from her local Home-Start and often gifted items and supported them in return. To help raise funds I will be running a series of 10Ks over the next year.
All offers of support, large or small, are welcome. Even the smallest amount can help enrich the life of a family:
- £10 covers a volunteer's expenses for a month
- £30 provides support for a family for a month
- £400 provides annual safeguarding training for their volunteers
- £1250 supports a family with a home-visiting volunteer for a year
- £2500 funds one local training course for 10-12 volunteers to support families that need their help
It would be fab if you could donate towards this great cause. Catherine would have loved knowing that she made a difference to a child's life. A perfect way to celebrate her and keep me fit! x
Running for Home-Start Spelthorne
To help raise funds I will run a 10K race every month for a year, with the final race taking place on Saturday 14th July 2018. "10K? That's no marathon!" I hear you say. Therefore I will work my legs off to improve my time by a mn per race. My last 10K was a very average 58"18, so the aim is to run my final 10K in 46"18 or less.
