My story

[p][br][/p][p]I will be running the Virgin London Marathon this year along with my dear friend Guy Bennet, our first marathon ever!!!!!!!![/p][p]All funds raised will directly benefit Emmaus Norfolk and Waveney. [/p][p]I want to give back to the community that has given me so much not only a place to live but a job I love doing, supporting companions to rebuild there lives and move on. I will also be running the marathon in memory of one of our companions Mickey who sadly passed away last year. [/p][p]Our community in Ditchingham provides a home and meaningful work in order tohelp people to move on from homelessness. [/p][p]Our community can currently cater for up to 23 companions working full time in our social enterprise, selling and recycling second-hand furniture and household items. This work supports the community financially and enables companions to develop skills, rebuild their self-respect and help others in greater need than themselves.[/p][p]We are building a sustainable community, offering a home to people who would otherwise be homeless and creating a fantasitic destination for shoppers, visitors, walkers and cyclists from across Norfolk and the Waveney Valley.[/p][p]Please donate whatever you can. [/p][p]Check out what we do in our ditchingham community [/p][p][url=https://www.emmaus.org.uk/norfolk_waveney]https://www.emmaus.org.uk/norfolk_waveney[/url][/p]
