My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. 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 really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]I am running the Great North Run to support the great work of Action Foundation and Open Arms. [/p][p]The work of Action Foundation is particulary important to me as they provided me with support and accommdoation after I moved to Newcastle as a refugee in 2013. The work they do providing accommodation and English language classes to refugees and asylum seekers in the region enables people to increase their confidence, integrate and live independently. [/p][p]I am also raising money to support Open Arms, a project I set up in June 2016. Open Arms provide a weekly drop-in service open to all refugees and asylum seekers. It is an opportunity for them to relax in a safe environment, play games, enjoy a hot lunch and make friends.
