On 2nd April 2023 I will be running my first marathon in aid of Refugee Roots. I am doing this to celebrate my mum's legacy. She was a giving women, who had time for people and for the last decade of her life, worked for the Frank Hodgson Foundation offering support to the elderly who experienced financial hardship.

This work has inspired me to do what I can to support my local community. Therefore, I feel Refugees Roots are the perfect charity to raise funds for, to continue their work to include those most in need in our community and offer the necessary support they need to find their feet and feel included in our society.

I appreciate any donations to this page and I am absolutely sure my mum would too. If you can't donate, that is absolutely grand, if you could give this page a share that would be wonderful.

Thanks for reading.
