Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Child poverty is on the increase and yet those very kids need our support more than ever. The Children's Society provides that support but needs cash to do it! Joe will be running the London Marathon this year so if you donate to his Marathon run, the charity will get the money and spend it on helping those children most at risk.

Remember with all your donations to The Children's Society:

£10 could buy a couple of hot meals a month for a neglected child when a support worker meets them.

£20 could buy a top-up phone card for a young runaway so they can quickly contact a support worker when they are in danger.

£30 could fund a mediation session in a family breakdown situation.

£40+ can significantly help any of our projects supporting young carers, children at risk of sexual exploitation or neglect.

Your support will spur me on to run a great race!

Before you go, have a quick look at some of the recent work The Children's Society has done in highlighting issues around free school meals:

Thank you UBS for matching Deirdre Joyce's generous £150 donation £ for £. This further £150 will be transferred directly from UBS to The Children's Society (hence off-line). Thank you!
