Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page.

We're joining together to raise money for Revive, a fantastic charity supporting refugees and people seeking asylum in this country.

People who arrive here have been forced to to flee their homes from war, persecution and violent regimes. Many of them have risked their lives on their journey. But what the media doesn't report, is that even when they finally arrive in the UK, things are made torturously difficult for them by the British Government. 

The culture of disbelief facing them is both frustrating and degrading. This would be impossible for anyone, let alone for someone whose first language isn't English. People are left for months and months with no news after having made their asylum claim, during which time they are not permitted to work or access any services and over 65% of these will be refused, because of a minor slip up on a form, or because they aren't deemed to have suffered 'quite enough'. 

Anyway, thanks to donations, Revive is able to change this for some of these people.

They offer free immigration advice, social support, advocacy and various other enrichment projects, making the process that bit easier for their service users. 

So if you can donate anything at all, that would be so so great! 

Or, EVEN BETTER, JOIN US and run too and help me to raise money for Revive. It's a half marathon, Sunday 28th May (so plenty of time to train) in Manchester, OR you could do 10k, on the same day--- details here:  http://www.greatrun.org/great-manchester-run

You'll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your donation can really help us smash this goal and change the lives of people trying to start a life here in the UK.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
