Event: Oxford Half Marathon 2021, on 17 October 2021
We provide specialist services to support survivors of sexual violence


To my surprise I started running during the UK COVID lockdown and found I couldn't stop.  Then I retired from full-time work, turned 68, my daughter gave birth to a beautiful boy and I became a grandad for the first time.  So, I thought it was time to run a half marathon and raise some money as well.

I'd be so pleased if you could sponsor me by donating to my chosen causes which are:

1.  OSARCC - please join me in supporting this amazing local Oxfordshire organisation providing vital support and advocacy to survivors of sexual violence.

You can donate to them on this Just Giving page. 

£30 sponsorship could cover the cost of 12 calls to OSARRC's telephone hotline

£100 sponsorship could cover the cost of 8 selfcare packs for survivors 

£150 sponsorship could allow OSARCC to run 3 specialist counselling sessions

OSARCC mission's is to support women and girl survivors of sexual violence, promote and advocate for their needs and work towards the elimination of sexual violence. They do this by providing a range of support services (including counselling, support groups, helpline and email support, and advocacy), raising awareness of the prevalence and impact of sexual violence and challenging, and changing public attitudes about sexual violence in Oxfordshire and beyond.

2.  The Women's Centre in the Al A'mari Refugee Camp in Ramallah, Palestine supported via the Oxford Ramallah Friendship Association (ORFA).  To donate to them please use this link to my fundraising page on Local Giving here:
