Thanks for taking the time to visit my just giving page.

 On Sunday 2nd April 2023 I will be running The London Landmarks Half Marathon for Buckinghamshire’s oldest and largest advice charityCitizens Advice Bucks.

In 2022 Citizens Advice Bucks helped 12,000 people across Buckinghamshire caught up in the cost-of-living crisis.  A team of 90 expert volunteer advisers worked tirelessly with people across the county to offer free advice on debt, rent arrears, benefits and direct crisis support.  

Donations to the charity meant that they could help vulnerable people across Buckinghamshire with their advice.  People like Anja* who escaped with her baby daughter to a shelter after experiencing domestic violence.   Citizens Advice Bucks successfully helped Anja with her application for child benefit, meaning that she could afford to feed her family and buy essential uniform.  Anja’s words illustrate the impact of every donation received by Citizens Advice Bucks….

“Thank you very much. I received a backdated benefit of £650, the first pay check where I could buy uniforms. Your help is indescribable. Tears of happiness flowed from me.”

In 2023 the current crisis will push many more in Buckinghamshire below the UK poverty line and thousands will face eviction, hunger and crippling energy bills.  More families in Buckinghamshire will be unable to afford to heat their homes, feed their children regularly, or buy the fuel they need to drive their car to work.  The situation will push some to the brink.  Demand for Citizens Advice Bucks will be greater than ever, yet it will continue to advise people through the crisis, empowering those facing challenges and directly supporting those that can’t.

I know that Citizens Advice Bucks will turn lives around with their free and expert advice and that’s why I’m running for them.  Every donation, no matter how small has the power to help thousands of people across Buckinghamshire and that will keep me going for all 13 and a bit miles!
