Team story

[p]On 28th April 2019, we will both be running the London marathon for Jesuit Missions, an international development charity run by the Jesuits in Britain. For over 50 years it has supported vulnerable communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.[/p][p]The money we raise will support the vital projects run in these areas which ensure refugees in Uganda can continue their education, that provide training workshops in South Africa, defend women’s rights in India, help to treat patients with HIV and leprosy in China and protect the indigenous Amerindian communities in Guyana.[/p][p]This will be Richard's first marathon and just to make it harder on himself, we've both decided to do this dressed as Wombles.[/p][p]As little as £20 can make a huge difference, but we'd be grateful for anything you can offer.[/p][p]We would both really appreciate your support to help us reach our combined target of £4,000. We’ve already been training hard throughout the winter and are really excited about the event, but also a little nervous about the challenge ahead![/p][p]Thank you very much.[/p][p]Richard and John[/p]
