Freedom from Torture

We provide care to survivors of torture to rebuild lives and promote human rights

Story

We did it! 7hrs and 7mins of swim bike run and shoe change ;) And you were a part of it! Read more here... 

While Ironman Mallorca might seem like a great way to spend the day, it certainly won't be a walk in the park. In the swim, I dodged chest-kicks by my fellow competitors for 1.2 miles, on the bike, I tackled 680m /2200ft of climb for 56 miles then ran a half marathon along the beach while everyone enjoys a beer. I'm funding the whole trip and race myself (well with my mum's generosity) - the charity aren't paying a bean. So why I am doing this? You can read more about my involvement with Freedom from Torture here

I know that in the UK times are tight but please consider donating the cost of one pint - the money you'd spend on that is more than a torture survivor needs for a bus trip to a therapist. 

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you.
