We help survivors of exploitation to recover, build safe lives and stay free.


Holy heck! It's happening! I am 'running' the London Marathon on April 23, 2023. Now, I am sure there's a couple of questions you are asking yourselves - so let's address them now... 

Will you win it? 

Great question, well put. I probs could obvs win in, but I am going to let some younger, thinner athletes win this time around. 

Are you training?

I'm probably PTP (pounding the pavements) as you read this and anyone who says otherwise is a liar. 

Who are you raising money for?

I know times are tough for everyone, but the reality is we are in a very privileged position. Sadly, that's not the case for a lot of people. I'm raising money for Ella's - a charity that helps women who has survived trafficking and sexual exploitation. Any funds raised will have a huge positive impact on the lives of women who have suffered horribly - so please if you are able to donate a couple of quid - you are really doing an amazing thing. 

Ella’s works with women who have survived trafficking and sexual exploitation. They offer safe house accommodation for women when they are most vulnerable, care to help them recover and long-term community-based support to help them build safe, independent lives. 'On my first day at Ella’s, it felt like being welcomed home. I slept that night for the first time in two weeks,' says Sharon, who lives in one of Ella's safe houses. Every single act of support helps make this work possible. Thank you for helping to unlock freedom.
