My story

[p]Gutted that the London Marathon is off - but the awesome Consortium for Street Children* still need the cash! [/p][p]I couldn’t really ask you to chip in just for me to jog round the local park so here’s the challenge...[/p][p]Playing on the traditional marathon ‘26’ distance, and the fact it’s weirdly 260km from Sheffield to London, I am going to cycle 260km in one day - sometime in October. To make sure I earn your kind contributions I will also cover 2600m of ascent (the same as sea level to the top of most ski resorts). Should be a good day out as I circle the Peak District, over the Pennines and head over to the west coast and back. [/p][p]Apart from the type 2 fun of it - why would I do that?[/p][p]Well I've worked with CSC for 10 years. From CSC member projects supporting the rights, dignity and potential of kids alone in faraway slums, to raising their vital voices at the UN Human Rights Council - I've seen the huge impact of CSC first hand. I am super proud to be raising money for them - especially when Covid 19 has had such a huge impact on services for street children and sadly also the funding available (including losing money from DIFD). They are a smaller charity but they make big change happen, both in the UK and right around the world. [/p][p]As I head off to do some hill reps on my bike I know the task will be much easier If you are supporting me, and especially when I know CSC will make such good use of the funds. Can I ask you to think about digging again into the wallet and joinIng CSC in fighting for the rights of street children worldwide. It really is appreciated. [/p][p]If you want you can find out more about CSC here: https://www.streetchildren.org, if you have any questions or might want to get involved with supporting or working with CSC yourself I’d be very happy to talk more :-) [/p][p]*[i]The Consortium for Street Children is an international children’s charity fighting for the rights of street children worldwide. We are the only global alliance raising the voices of street children at international level. We are pioneering and we are fearless. We work with governments to promote good practice, challenge and change the systems that cause harm to street children, while our network members are busy on the frontline, working directly with street children to meet their immediate and long term needs. [/i][/p][p][i]This includes the need for shelter, education, health care and justice, all of which they are entitled to under the Convention on the Rights of the Child[/i][/p]
