£1,000 raised in Solidarity!
On Saturday May 9th a group of Companions, Staff, Volunteers and Trustees participated in Run or Dye 2015 to raise funds for our solidarity projects; Spires Day Centre in Streatham and the Moldova project which renovates properties and helps out disabled children in the poorest country in Europe.
I wanted to find a way to get involved and this seemed like the easiest way to do so. Boy was I wrong! The course was over different terrain and at every kilometre I was getting bombarded with powder paint.
It was ok though because I had help from Nas and Andy after making a promise to myself that I would take it slowly. The whole event was great fun and we raised nearly a £1,000 for our selected Charities.
It was a tiring day but one that I won’t forget.
