London Marathon - 2021

Why we need your help

Hi, I'm Martin Holcombe, CEO of Birmingham Settlement and with my much younger and fitter niece, Rachel Todd, am running this year's London Marathon. Rachel has run events for us before and when we were offered places for London she suggested I run with her, to which I obviously said yes although as the date nears and reality kicks in, I suspect I may be running a fair few miles behnd her! 

The reason we are putting ourselves through the pain is of course, to raise some much needed funds for the Settlement which has been supporting some of our most vulnerable people and most marginalised communities for more than 120 years. Our staff and volunteers are passionate about our work, whether it's money advice, help to access hardship grants or food vouchers; training to build confidence, skills and enhance employability; activities for older people to reduce isolation; stay and play sessions for children, youth provision to help young people take positive steps with their lives; or social activities to encourage people to engage, contribute and take control of their communities, we're there.

Covid-19 has impacted on all of us and created many additional challenges for those who were already experiencing the impact of health and social inequality, including mental health and wider wellbeing; and everything the Settlement does is geared to help people and communities to get back on their feet, to help people transform ther lives and with your help we can continue our increasingly important work. No matter how large or small, all donations are appreciated, so thank you for helping us to continue our work helping others, something we have been doing since 1899.
