Thank you for taking the time to visit RMG's fundraising page.
RMG are taking part in this years Great Manchester Run and Tough Mudder, Midlands on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May. We have a team of keen employees ready to take part in both the 10km and the half marathon.
We are raising money for Booth Centre a charity based in the City Centre of Manchester that offers advice, activities and support to homeless people.
Homelessness could happen to any of us at any time, whether it stems from breakdown of families, loss of employment or unexpected financial difficulties.
The Booth Centre's mission is simply 'to bring about positive change in the lives of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. In addition, to help those in need to plan for and realise a better future.' The Centre is a charity which help homeless people to rebuild their lives. Each day over 100 people will come through the doors of the Booth Centre. The Centre doesn't just provide a place of warmth, shelter and food but also shower facilities, physical activities, counselling and assisting people with employment opportunities or further education.
Over 40% of those who attend will currently be sleeping rough on the streets and others will have experienced homelessness recently or will be at risk of becoming homeless. The numbers visiting the Centre are rising whilst their funding is reducing.
RMG are supporting the charity in a number of different ways from food collections to having teams working in the Centre on a regular basis. The support provided is greatly appreciated by Booth Centre and those visiting the Centre from RMG have all got a lot out of their visits. It is very inspirational to see how the Booth Centre have changed peoples lives who thought there was nowhere else to turn.
