    Story

    The UK government has committed to relocate 20,000 families from refugee camps to the UK. 'Refugee Matters' is a community based project working with the 'Community Sponsorship' programme to try to provide a family home in the Fareham area. The Home Office requires that sponsoring organisations raise £9000 to provide support for the family when they arrive in the UK.

    We are around 1/2 way towards our target and are embarking on a range of fundraising activities to hit our target from cake sales to sponsored walks, Charity dinners to appeals for donations.

    Any help you provide will be used directly to bring a family out of the poverty and misery of a refugee camp and give them a chance for a new life.

      Well done Jon - Course completed in just under 1:50 (average for men - 2:04)! Jon secured over £300 for the project - a great help.

      Final result for Colette's run £845!!! Fantastic. Next significant event - Jon Gott (my son-in-law) is running the Gosport Half Marathon for the first time. This is Jon's longest run so far and he need all the support we can give him. What better encouragement could you give than a donation to the cause he's chosen to run for?
