    Weʼve raised £1,231 to support local young people Leaving Care.

    Funded on Friday, 6th January 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I’m raising funds for local young people leaving care at age 18. Despite being some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged they face the challenge of transition into independence at a much earlier age than most young people. Funds will be used to help ease isolation and provide social and cultural opportunities that they would not otherwise have access to.

    To help raise funds I’ve set myself a challenge of running the Berlin and London marathons in a combined time of less than 6 hours. The marathons take place one week apart 25th Sept & 2nd Oct.

      I’m blown away by the support I’ve received! Thank you to all who’ve contributed. It spurred me on to a time of 2 hours 48 mins in London. A touch slower than last week in Berlin! But very pleased to go sub 6 for the two marathons. This money will make a real difference for young people leaving care in Wirral. Thank you all again.

      Thanks for the response so far! Amazing support. Marathon one is ticked off in a time of 2 hours 38 mins. Conditions could not have been better and Berlin was a truly fantastic experience. Now on to London!
