Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I've been involved with Woman's Trust for many years and this is the second time I've run a half marathon to raise funds for this excellent organisation. Woman's Trust is a specialist service providing counselling and therapeutic support for women affected by domestic abuse. This dedicated work, by a team of volunteer counsellors and a small number of paid staff, goes on behind the headlines, and often without recognition, enabling women to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of domestic violence.
I am continually in awe of how much we do, with such limited resources. So I know that even a small fundraising venture can make such a difference:
£8 provides 1 hour of childcare enabling a mother to attend counselling
£65 provides 1 counselling session
£150 provides room hire for 10 counselling sessions
£565 allows a woman to attend 8 weeks of support groups
Thank you for your support, it means a lot to me and to the women who use our services.
