Living in Australia, Sydney's City to Surf is one of those events you just have to do. It requires you to run (with millions of other Sydneysiders) 14 kms from the city to Bondi Beach in the freezing cold of August - with a smile on your face the whole way! It's also of course a great way to raise money for charity and I have chosen HOPE - a charity I have come to know and love to support.
HOPE’s mission is to give the children of Cambodia a childhood and the young adults of Cambodia a better future, through play, education and development, in order to harness opportunity and positive change.HOPE is seeking to support existing programmes assisting young people with their education and social development where:
- there is a need for further funding to expand either the variety of their activities, for example extra provision in English or computer classes, or increase the number of young people they can support- we strongly believe it will make a permanent difference/improvement to the young people in the programmes- we can monitor the progress and results of the programme HOPE does not intend to re-invent the wheel, duplicate effort or waste money on unnecessary admin costs.For more info on HOPE: http://www.hopeforcambodia.org.uk/
