Sponsor our Runners to raise much needed funds
There are an estimated 300,000 vulnerable children in this country who cannot live with their parents and are being raised by grandparents or other relatives. The children have experienced tragedy or trauma and yet many of these carers receive little if any practical or financial help, despite many being in severe financial poverty.
In 2013 our ambition is to raise £20,000 from our sporting activities to help fund local fun days for children who cannot live with their parents and are being raised by grandparents and extended family members and to help set up local support groups for these carers. There are few such groups in the country, yet they make a world of difference to children and carers who often feel very isolated. We have no other monies this year to support this work.
We are delighted that several people have generously offered to raise funds for Family Rights Group whilst participating in our various sporting activities.
Congratulations to Alice Twaite, Goz Hayter, Haydn Kirnon and Pravin SmartÂÂ who took part in the Great South RunÂÂ on 27th October 2013. 100% of monies raised by those who were part of our team will go to Family Rights Group.
