Story

This year I am running the Great North Run for my second time to support the work of Cambodia Hope Organisation (CHO)!

CHO is an amazing Christian charity that I worked with a couple of years ago and I'd love to be able to raise some money to support the invaluable work they do. They work on the Thailand Cambodia border with some of the poorest people in and around the town of Poipet. They run many projects including an initiative called 'School on a Mat' where children in remote villages have access to education. They also teach families how to farm, install toilets, start house Churches and run a school, among other things! Above all they long to bring hope to the communities and share the love of Jesus. CHO have a cafe called Destiny Cafe in Poipet too and all the profits go to support the work of the charity.

Check out their website for more details:

CHO are a partner of Tearfund and two years ago I spent two weeks with them out in Cambodia as part of a short term mission team which was an incredible experience. They do all things with great love and there is such a joy in it too.

Anything you feel able to give by sponsoring me will go straight to supporting the charity. Thank you so much!
