Charity Registration No. 1056825

Story

In May 2018, to mark the Friary’s 30th birthday, I’m aiming to complete 10 Triathlons in 10 Days. Each of these involves a 5 km run, a 20 km bike ride and a 750 m swim. 

I’ve been with the Friary for 8 years, firstly as a volunteer and since 2014
as a member of staff. 
The Friary supports homeless and vulnerable people in rebuilding their lives. We offer practical services (food, clothing, shower etc.), advice and emotional support. Visitors can also see a range of health professionals including a GP and a nurse specialising in treating rough sleepers.

As a drop-in we’re open 3 mornings a week with an average of 90 attendees each morning. At other times, people can be seen by appointment.

In addition to their housing and/or financial situation, individuals who use the Friary often face a number of other challenges including mental and physical health problems, substance misuse, social exclusion, illiteracy and domestic abuse/violence. 

If you’re able to sponsor me, that would be great and very much appreciated and a real motivation when training for and actually doing the challenge.

Thank you for getting this far!
