The Wellspring (Stockport)

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

Story

Hello everyone. 

I've decided to try and run every day in December to try and raise some money for the Wellspring because it's Christmas and the people they look out for deserve a little something.

My challenge is to hit at least a 5k, every day, for the whole month. 31 days in a row including Christmas Day, Boxing Day. You get the drill. Come rain, come shine, come hangover, I'll be going for a little run. And this is why: because The Wellspring are well good, lads.

They're 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.
