We made it!
A long night walking through some torrential rain and a great achievement with our charity Depaul UK
15th October 2019
We started in bright and breezy fashion enjoying the exercise in crisp autumnal air but a torrential downpour just before half way soaked us to the skin and we were cold and reflective for the last 5 miles.
But that is the point, isn’t it? Not only are we raising money to help with young homelessness but we are looking to raise awareness – even among ourselves – of the reality of having nowhere to go back to, nowhere to call home and to prefer to walk the streets and sleep rough rather than go back to a violent or dysfunctional base – in the worst of weather.
So pleased and proud to have taken part. Thank you so much to Marie-Claire, Annie and everyone at Depaul UK – and everyone on our team who stepped up and stepped out.
Depaul UK’s website has details of their fund raising activities and the opportunity to donate and more details about their great work, including the fantastic Night Stop service.
