Fundraising

  • Lucy Sweeney - French Riviera Marathon

    Lucy Sweeney

    For some mad reason i've decided to run the French Riviera Marathon on the 4th November. That's right, i'll be dragging my little legs all the way from Nice to Cannes for fun and more importantly, bragging rights.

    I've decided to fundraise for Whitechapel Mission as homelessness hits a record high in London and the UK and with winter fast approaching they need our help more than ever. So please donate to this important cause and as a thank you I promise i'll stop going on about running.

  • Taking part in The Great South Run

    Carole Jacob

    I volunteered one morning a few weeks ago on the Breakfast shift. I was on tea/coffee making duties, and the kind, humorous, mostly polite "clients" I served that morning totally opened my eyes to what I envisage as a homeless person and left me feeling very humble.

    So if you feel you would be able to give a little to help this great organization then I would be very grateful as I know they undoubtedly will be too.
