We’re organising a joint 5k and 10k run involving the staff, volunteers, clients at Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants and partner organisations at The Olympic Park on Wednesday 17th May 2017 to raise money for the centre.
As I’m sure most of you will know, this is a charity that offers support services and English classes to largely refugees and asylum seekers in the migrant community in London in order to offer them an opportunity to get on in their life in the UK. I’m a project worker and Volunteer Manager at the centre and so I have a personal stake in seeing that the good work that the charity does continue. Every fundraising activity plays its part in making sure that this happens, so, in turn, every donation counts.
Please give any amount, no matter how great or small, by clicking on the link above. Feel free to come along, if you want to. The meeting point is:
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, 3 Thornton Street, London E20 2ST
The start time is around 7pm. The event is called ‘Chase the Sun’, as we’ll be running against the early summer sun set!
