We Provide service to homeless people to support homeless people off the streets

Charity Registration No. 1157268

Story

Three races, two people, one day.

We are planning on running a combined 32.4 miles on 19th May to try and raise money for The Wellspring to help them provide support to the homeless and disadvantaged.

In the morning we'll both be running the Great Manchester Half Marathon: a full marathon between the two of us.

In the afternoon, Joe will be attempting to round things off with a spin round the 10k course.

The Wellspring is a local charity and resource centre in Stockport that helps homeless and vulnerable or disadvantaged people. The centre is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year and offers valuable services totally free of charge to service users, including advice, meals, clothes, health services, education & training, and practical support.

The Wellspring is an independent, non-means-tested, non-judgemental service that is open to anyone over 18 who needs it.

They unfortunately receive no funding from the government, local council or the lottery, and therefore rely completely on donations.

In addition to providing front-line services for the homeless and disadvantaged, The Wellspring aim to support people out of homelessness and become independent by helping them develop skills and confidence.

Unbelievably they have helped over 4,000 people get off the streets and into accommodation, and aim to reduce future homelessness in Stockport by engaging with and supporting those at risk of homelessness.

So please give a little (or a lot!) if you can spare anything.

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.
