My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my page.[/p][p]I will be running the London Marathon on the 4th October to raise funds for the [url=https://www.londonlegalsupporttrust.org.uk/]London Legal Support Trust[/url].[/p][p]The money that I raise will go toward providing access to justice for vulnerable individuals and families. Your contribution will help to prevent homelessness, resolve debt problems, gain care for older and disabled people, help trafficked women and children and modern day slaves.[/p][p]London Legal Support Trust (LLST) is a charity that supports law centres and legal advice agencies in London and the South East. These agencies help the most vulnerable people to combat discrimination and injustice. Legal help at a time of crisis and distress makes a huge difference to people's lives, reducing debt, poverty and homelessness and maintaining rights.[/p][p]I am a passionate supporter of the LLST and its aim to ensure that access to justice is not dictated by financial means. This is a huge challenge in light of the severe budget cuts to legal aid in recent years.[/p][p]I can think of no better way of showing my support for the organisation (and an appreciation of the challenges being faced) than pushing myself far outside of my comfort zone and signing up for the Marathon (and raising the necessary funds in the process). This is a cause I believe in so please sponsor my run as generously as you can! Together, we can help vulnerable people access justice.[/p][p]Thank you for your support.[/p][p][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/i][/p]
