My story

[p][br][/p][p][b]UPDATE: [/b]Amazing! I've managed to hit my fundraising target within 11 days! A big thank you to everyone who has donated![/p][p]So far I've pulled muscles, swallowed the entire cast of A Bug's Life, thrown up, almost beat my PBs for 5k and 10k (watch this space!!), and covered 68 Kilometers in total.[/p][p]I have another 20 days and at least 100km to go so I'm going to push on and keep asking for donations and support for Future Projects. [b]For every £20 donated from now on, I will run an extra 5k by the end of the month - on top of my 155k target [/b]so please share, donate, or do whatever you can to help me smash this target and raise more funds for our amazing Key Workers!!![/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for visiting my giving page! I am raising funds on behalf of Future Projects – an amazing Charity which helps vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Norfolk. Every penny I raise will go towards Key Workers who will be providing information, food, clothing, medicines and welfare checks for isolated people during lockdown.[/p][p]I work for Future Projects, so I see the incredible work of the staff and volunteers every day. Their selfless efforts, genuine care and unrivalled dedication is truly inspiring and literally saves lives. [/p][p]To raise funds, I have set myself the challenge of running 5 Kilometres every single day in May (that’s 155km in total!), and if that’s not tough enough, I will also completely abstain from alcohol for the duration of the challenge! [/p][p]Anybody who knows me will understand just how difficult this challenge will be for me![/p][p]I will provide regular updates on my progress so keep an eye on this page and the charity’s social media to see how I am doing - [url=https://www.facebook.com/Futureprojects11/]facebook.com/Futureprojects[/url] & [url=https://twitter.com/FutureProjects1]twitter.com/FutureProjects[/url][/p][p]In the meantime, please give generously to this amazing charity in the knowledge that your pounds and pence will be put to use right here in the communities where you live, to support the most vulnerable among us.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]What your support will mean to me[/b][/p][p]They say that charity begins at home, and as a society we are very charitable and supportive of good causes. However, sometimes its easy to lose sight of local issues in favour of larger, national campaigns. The money you give will not go into a large national fund somewhere, it will be used to make a major difference right here in Norwich and Norfolk and that’s something I am extremely proud of.[/p][p]Anything you can give would mean a great deal to me, so thank you in advance![/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]About Future Projects[/b][/p][p]Future Projects has an incredible team of around 55 employees and 70 volunteers who work tirelessly to deliver services to extremely vulnerable and isolated people in Norfolk. [/p][p]The charity is rooted in the communities it serves and aims to change the lives of children, adults and families which other services find difficult to support.[/p][p]The services they provide wouldn’t fit on one page so feel free to look around their website [url=http://futureprojects.org.uk/]futureprojects.org.uk[/url][/p][p]Examples of the charity’s work include supporting rough sleepers to move off the streets, helping the long term unemployed into training or work, running a special school for children with complex special educational needs and disabilities, providing debt and money advice, supporting female ex-offenders to turn their lives around, providing support for people who are socially isolated, supporting victims of domestic abuse, delivering therapeutic and mental health support, providing digital and media skills and training programmes, supporting volunteer placements, and running Norwich’s community radio station, Future Radio (on 107.8fm, DAB & [url=http://futureradio.co.uk/]futureradio.co.uk[/url]).[/p][p][img]https://i.imgur.com/u3KjzRo.jpg[/img][/p][p]“[i]Our support workers have been a lifeline for vulnerable people during lockdown. They have helped victims of domestic abuse find safety and refuge, they have provided food and clothing to people with nothing and they continue to check on the welfare of people who are cut off from the outside world. In a recent welfare check on an elderly client with physical and mental disabilities who had recently suffered a stroke – they discovered him passed out in his home, severely dehydrated and with no way of raising the alarm. He had been there for four days and would certainly have passed away if we had not discovered him.[/i]”[/p][p][b]Future Support Manager – Grace Richardson[/b][/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p]“[i]The children we support have experienced very traumatic childhoods, often with histories of abuse and neglect. Many have significant mental health needs and are crying out for support and care. The majority have been out of education for long periods and exhibit risky behaviours related to their experience. We nurture their mental health and re-introduce them to learning with therapeutic approaches. It takes time to heal, but our students make remarkable progress towards becoming successful adults.”[/i][/p][p][b]Future Education Acting Head – Jane MacLennan[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][img]https://i.imgur.com/Ew5iUFV.png[/img] [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]How the money will make a difference[/b][/p][p]The coronavirus has had a major impact on the income and sustainability of charities’ as donations and revenue from events, fundraising and commercial activity have completely stopped. At the same time the demand for charities’ services has increased massively.[/p][p]Throughout this crisis, Future Projects’ key workers have continued to support vulnerable people by delivering food and medicine, carrying out welfare checks, facilitating therapeutic and medical support, providing mental health support and more. They are going above and beyond to ensure that the most vulnerable people are cared for and kept safe.[/p][p]Any funds I can raise will help fill the financial gap left by the coronavirus pandemic and will allow the charity to keep helping vulnerable people who desperately need it.
