In the night I have to wake up to help my daddy move and it is hard. I am also missing playing hide and seek with my mummy. I have not seen her since Christmas day...I love her and I miss her, please send her home."[/span][/i][/p] [lt]p style="margin-top: 10.0pt; margin-right: 0cm; margin-bottom: 10.0pt; margin-left: 0cm;"[gt][span=font-size: 9.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]At BID we help get people out of detention, by providing legal advice, representing them in court and by campaigning against the policies that put them there in the first place.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin-top: 10.0pt; margin-right: 0cm; margin-bottom: 10.0pt; margin-left: 0cm;"[gt][span=font-size: 9.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]All money LLST receives through this page will be given directly to BID without deduction.[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 10pt 0cm;"[gt][span=font-size: 9.5pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;]Walk the Thames is a half marathon / full marathon on Saturday, October 28th.
