Hi, Noor here. Thanks so much for even considering donating here. I'm planning on running TWO half marathons this month to raise money for the Counselling and Family Centre:

- Bristol Half Marathon on 14 May 2023

- Edinburgh Half Marathon on 28 May 2023

These will be the first half marathons I've ever run (yikes) so let's hope they go well.

The Counselling and Family Centre ( is a brilliant charity based in Manchester. Their service users include young people and adults of all genders and walks of life who need therapy and support. They work with individuals, couples and groups, in their centres, in schools and with other much-needed services in the city. Times are hard and life throws a lot at everyone, so I'm raising money here for a service that works to make people's days that bit more manageable.


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.

About the charity

The Counselling & Family Centre

We provide counselling, support groups, drop in sessions & courses for all in our community from the age of 5 years and upwards who need support for their mental and emotional health needs. No complicated restrictive referrals, no prior form filling, no huge financial barrier - simply come & tell us your story & we will do our utmost to provide appropriate timely support. We work mainly in the Trafford Borough of Manchester, but are spreading into Manchester & Salford to meet the needs of those who are being hit by the squeeze on services being felt across the country. Some quotes from our children's service: 'Feeling happier & less anxious. My relationship has changed for the better with my mum. It’s been really good & really helpful' 'I'm meditating every night. I don’t self-harm (five weeks clean!) & I’m a lot happier with my parents & family. I’m less panicky too. I’m happier in myself & being even more open to others. I talk more & have a more positive attitude & have more energy. You have really helped! I was really reluctant to come but I love it & it turned my world upside down'. 'I made friends with Y3 as no-one from Y4 would play with me. Now I have lots of friends, not just Y4. I’ve been kind & generous to others. I share with others. It’s been fun & I’ve learnt new things.
