From mid-July to mid-September, I'm going to try to walk from Land's End in the southwest of Britain to John o' Groats in the northeast. In the process, I'd like your help to raise money for The Gatehouse, an Oxford-based organization that I've worked with over the last year-and-a-bit.
The Gatehouse is a drop-in cafe that welcomes homeless people and provides a place where dignity, companionship and refreshment can be found in a warm and safe environment. The project is having to move out of its current building and will be moving to a new home in St Giles’ parish rooms, where the charity started up over 20 years ago. But before moving in, the building has to be totally renovated. The Gatehouse has launched an appeal to cover the necessary renovations, adaptations, moving and rental expenses. The cost of the move will be around £175,000. My aim is to raise 1% of that total.
Why not take a look at the Gatehouse blog: you'll find news, photos, and updates on the Moving Home appeal. Just visit www.gatehousemovinghome.blogspot.com
Thank you for helping the Gatehouse to move home.
Charity Registration No. 1002741
A cafe for homeless and other vulnerable people in the centre of Oxford. Open six days a week in the early evening. Activities and clothes as well as simple, nutritious food. In other words, a community centre for those who have no community.
Well done David! - The mere fact that you went is impressive - that you covered 280km even more so... I hope you get to do the rest some other time!
