Story

My Dad and I have been training since February to run the "Gower Ultra" which is 34 miles across the Welsh Coast Line from Llandimore to the Mumbles. It is entirely self funded so all donations will go towards Hope Worldwide UK.

We are running this in order to raise money for Hope Worldwide UK, divided equally between their two main projects - TwoStep and ODAAT.

TwoStep houses the homeless across London who are single and considered “low priority” for local government councils. ODAAT is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme. Both are well established projects which have been incredibly successful within their fields. (Read more about their work in the link above). 

They are non-government funded projects. They rely heavily on volunteers and donations. The money is always needed and well-used by the charity. My personal experience volunteering within the charity showed me the incredible work they do but also the amount of support they need.

We would not be doing this run if it weren't for the amazing work that is already occurring within these charities. We know that the money will go towards worthwhile projects. Please help us reach the goal of £1000. It will be an incentive to see the numbers rack up as we attempt to get closer towards our mileage goal. 

This is definitely the hardest thing I have ever done so please show your support my helping us reach our goal. 

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.
