My page:

This September I will be doing the Great North Run to raise money for Action Foundation who support refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants to start a new life in the North East of England.

I have spent the last year teaching English at Action Language and have had an incredibly enlightening and moving experience. All of the people I have met their have raised my faith in humanity. The students have proven to be incredibly optimistic and resillient human beings despite the ordeal of having to leave their home country. These people have canged my own perception of refugees and asylum seekers as they are all so determined to build a new and independent lfe for themselves in this country. 

Please help me to help them by donating to my run and with your geneoristy we can build a safe and constructive life for themselves and ultimately make a better society and culture for us all to live in.
