I took the plunge and signed up to run my first ever Half Marathon! Now there is something I never thought I’d say.. Though training is tough, starting running has helped keep my mind and body healthy and I now hope I can use it to help other people too. It was a really cold and hard winter here, so unimaginable how it must have been for those on the streets or in temporary accommodation. Homelessness is at its highest level for a decade and rough sleeping has doubled since 2010. That statistic is heart breaking and all too visible as you walk through the city. The Single Homeless Project believes that everyone deserves to live an independent and fulfilling life, and raising money for them can mean hope for hundreds of people. Not only do they help with the logistics of getting into work and housing, they also empower people through their ‘Opportunities Programme’ which champions peoples individual talents and nurtures wellbeing.

If you have ever felt lost as to how to help a homeless person, here is a way in which you can. Please donate what ever you can and I will keeeeeeeeeep on running !
