Story

I need your help. Having spent the last few years with this amazing Charity to understand them as an organisation I want to raise awareness and their funding as much as possible because every penny goes directly into tackling knife crime. With over 100 knife related deaths in our Capital this year, it's up to us to support these Charities. 

In April 2020 I will be running the Marathon des Sables, or MdS (French for Marathon of the Sands) a six-day, 251 km (156 mile) Ultramarathon set in the Sahara desert. Dubbed ‘The toughest footrace on earth’ due to running in 120 degree heat whilst being completely self sufficient - carrying everything you need to survive on your back. 

St Mary's Centre (SMCCT) works with young people aged 12-25 at risk of exclusion, violence, kidnap and death. On call 24x7x365. No other local youth project offers this level of support. They mentor in housing estates, schools, pupil referral units and prisons.

Their mission is to reduce violence and save lives. 

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.
