My story

[p]As some of you know, I've recently started running regularly in order to boost my fitness and general well-being, and a couple of weeks ago I signed up to my first run! [/p][p]I'm running 5k at the Great South Run in Portsmouth on Saturday 20th October, and I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to raise some money and awareness for a charity very close to my heart - The Archway Foundation. [/p][p]All of us have felt lonely at some point in our lives. Loneliness can affect anyone, no matter your age, background, or even your support network.[/p][p]The Archway Foundation was established in Oxford in 1982 to help relieve some of the real distress caused by loneliness. They connect those feeling alienated with a diverse group of volunteers, many of whom know for themselves how damaging loneliness can be.[/p][p]I would love to raise £150 to help this amazing charity. Your donations will make a real difference to people experiencing loneliness in Oxfordshire.[/p][p]£20 Provides transport for 2 months for someone who is unable to get out[/p][p]£50 Provides a safe and supportive environment for our social evenings[/p][p]£5 Enables weekly communication with 5 people[/p][p]However, I know money is tight for a lot of you, so if you are local to Oxford and you've been thinking about volunteering, please consider Archway. An hour of your time once a fortnight can make a real difference to someones life![/p][p]Thank you for reading![/p][p]Rachel. [/p][p][br][/p]
