My story

[p]On [b]Sunday 20th May[/b] I will be limbering up for my first ever Half Marathon, and to mark this momentous event I’m hoping to raise money for [b]Ace of Clubs[/b], a Clapham-based charity that offers shelter and support to those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised. I first heard about Ace of Clubs through the school where I work, Emanuel, whose Sixth Formers generously donate provisions each Christmas, and I’ve been an admirer of the great work that they do ever since. [/p][p]Thousands of people sleep outside on the streets each year, and the problem is visibly increasing. The number of people sleeping rough in England rose for the seventh consecutive year last year, up 15% from 2016. Particularly bad in London, almost a quarter of all England's homeless are in the capital, where the rise was 18%.[/p][p]Ace of Clubs responds to the immediate needs of people by providing shelter, warmth, food and clothing, as well as building relationships with them and linking them to various services including accommodation, welfare, training, rehab, and healthcare. The number of people coming to Ace of Clubs has more than doubled over the last year, and they currently help between 80-100 people per day.[/p][p]You can find out more at [url=http://aceofclubs.org.uk]http://aceofclubs.org.uk[/url], and I know that they would be enormously grateful for any donation you can spare. [/p][p]Finally, I’m hoping to complete the race in [b]90 minutes[/b], give or take, so I intend to sweat for your money![/p][p]Thank you,[/p][p]Ed[/p][p][img][/img][/p]
