Story

On 14th Jan 2014 I started working with Homeless Oxfordshire. Ten years later, I'd like to do Spring Wolf on April 27th to raise money for them. Spring Wolf is a 10k run with thirty obstacles, and I'm looking at aiming £400+; £10 a km, £10 an obstacle.

As I run I'll reflect on each year I've been with the charity with each kilometre, and with each obstacle I will reflect on the obstacles homeless people face towards living independantly that HOx supports with.

Homeless Oxfordshire is the county’s largest not-for-profit supported accommodation provider for people experiencing homelessness and is an open door for people whose lives have been shaped by trauma; providing safety, stability, and support. Each night we accommodate approximately 170 people. But we are more than bricks and mortar. Through our hostel and community housing projects, we provide the person-centred support to help the most vulnerable in our society to recover from homelessness.
