Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

After High school, I was fortunate to have opportunities to further my studies and chose to attend university in Kenya. For many, this opportunity is not available, not by any fault of their own but because of the circumstances they were born into. Whilst in Kenya, I became close friends with several young people who were supported by Hand in Hand through training and mentorship. For many of them, their hard work has been rewarded, and they are now working as plumbers, nurses or running their own businesses. I will be running the 2024 London Marathon to raise money for Hand in Hand Charity to give other young people the opportunity to progress themselves.

100% of the money Hand in Hand receives from your donations will go to providing training opportunities for students connected to project partners in Kenya.
