Story

I will (rota-swap permitting!) be running the Oxford Half Marathon again in October, and am hoping to use any sponsorship towards this to help a truly inspiring lady - lets call her P. I had the pleasure of meeting her while volunteering in Lamu, Kenya in May.

P is a South Sudanese refugee, who is currently in Kenya, in the process of getting all her paperwork finalised, aiming to become fully self-sufficient and support her family. Her grit and determination have got her as far as she has got today, and I am honoured to have met her. She is a qualified yoga instructor, having been sponsored through a number of programmes, but is also hoping to study further in order to gain knowledge in small business/start-up. Any money people would be willing to donate will go towards buying P a new laptop so that she can start taking the steps towards developing her business skills and hopefully her own business in the future. I was hoping people might be able to donate anything - be it cup-of-coffee-amount (I know most of us hardly have lots sloshing around) - in order to help P reach this dream (it's a lot bigger than I'm making out, but hard to put into words). Anything, big or small, would be so appreciated.

Please do send me a message if you'd like some more information about this.
