Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
It has become very clear that 2016 is the year that just won't quit - So maybe it's time we did some good in the world. For the most part, those reading this will have a warm house, can sleep soundly knowing your families will be safe and you have access to pretty amazing free healthcare, as and when you need it. However for people living in war torn areas of Syria, this just isn't the case.
Hand in Hand are a small charity, working inside Syria, delivering aid and helping create safe spaces for the most vulnerable people caught up a conflict they have no way out of. They provide emergency and routine medical care, water purification and take food supplies to those who need it most.
So, why am I rowing a half marathon. I don't know if any of you have ever rowed for more than about 20 minutes, but it is not easy! It's especially not easy for me, as I have very little stamina! So why not. I wanted to do something different and something to challenge myself. Instead of buying people you don't like Christmas cards, bung a couple of quid this way and send out a text instead, you could be saving lives.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
