My story

[p]Don't run a marathon, never run a marathon... is what I say to myself every time I go for a run. And here I am, training to run the London marathon for Tamar!! Yikes, what happened? Well, Tamar is a charity based in Westminster which exists to restore hope to people exploited in the sex industry. Westminster is the number 1 hotspot for trafficking in the UK, with over 32,000 people working in London's sex industry (Office for National Statistics). Shockingly, half are estimated to be trafficked and are often isolated without a connection to any support or opportunity to find alternative work.[/p][p]I have volunteered for this incredible charity for about 3 years and have seen how Tamar restores hope by offering friendship and support to each woman we meet - from a connection to healthcare services to free 1-1 English lessons. We do this as we believe Jesus promises to restore each person's valley of trouble into a gateway of hope (Hosea 2:15). Running a marathon is the least I can do to help raise funds and awareness of this dark industry.[/p][p]Any donation will massively help and to give you an idea of where it goes, please keep reading:[/p][p][b]£5[/b] covers the travel cost of a trafficking survivor to attend a weekly English lesson.[/p][p][b]£100[/b] covers monthly insurance costs to allow us to reach women in brothels and help identify trafficked victims.[/p][p][b]£500[/b] goes towards employment costs of our Tamar leader, to ensure volunteers are fully trained and supported.[/p][p]Cheering also counts as support so please come out on the 28th![/p][p]Lil x[/p][p][url=http://tamarwestminster.org/]tamarwestminster.org [/url][/p]
