My story

[p]We really wanted to do the 2.6 challenge in place of the London marathon on 26th April but were not organised enough...Thanks to our many cycle rides over the lockdown period, we are now trained and ready to go! We have designed our own 'marathon' with the girls (9 and nearly 4) cycling a total of 26.2 miles over 7 days starting from today, Sunday 20th May. We will cycle to local destinations and back. Obviously the journeys involve multiple stops, bribes with ice cream, and lots of pushing up the steep hills by Mummy![/p][p]We are raising funds for the Islington Refugee Centre. This day centre, which has now had to close in the lockdown, provides vital support for some of the most vulnerable people in London, many of whom are homeless. See this video by Juliet Stevenson, the patron of IRC, who has launched this special appeal:[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/q43INCt6ueQ?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]There is also this news report by one of the IRC's clients, who explains what the Coronavirus crisis has meant for him:[/p][p]https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/coronavirus-uk-lockdown-hostile-environment-asylum-seeker-destitute-a9497296.html[/p][p][img]https://islingtoncentre2.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/logo-islington-centre-current.jpg[/img][/p]
