My story

[p]Ruth, my wife has just been commissioned as an officer in Church Army, a charity who are passionate about improving the lives of the poor and vulnerable. On 17th July, the family proudly attended her commissioning service in Sheffield which was led by the right Rev'd Jo Bailey-Wells, Bishop of Dorking (see photo below, Ruth is second on the left). Ruth works at one of the Church Army Centres of Mission in Southampton.[/p][p]I am proud to be raising money by running in the Great North Run in September for the work of the Church Army. '[i]We put our faith in to action through our commitment to positive social action and empowering others'. [/i][/p][p]Some of the Projects Church Army support are as follows:[/p][p]The Marylebone Project: Working with homeless women in London, this is one of the largest projects and hostels of its kind within the UK and Ireland. [/p][p]Made in Marylebone is a social enterprise for homeless women in London. It gives women the opportunity to work and train in catering and business.[/p][p]Cardiff Residential Centres: Working with homeless young people in Cardiff, providing them with accommodation and helping them back into independent living. [/p][p]The Amber Project exists to support any young person (aged 14-25) in Cardiff and the surrounding areas who has experience of self-harm.[/p][p]“Church Army exists both to talk to people about Jesus and bring them to faith in Jesus but it also does this extraordinary work of serving the poor and the poorest parts of the country and that speaks to the value of human beings.” - Archbishop Justin Welby.[/p][p]Please help support this worthwhile cause by sponsoring me in the Great North Run this year.
