My story

[p]Like much of the world, the British diplomatic community has been impacted by the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. With our diplomats and other embassy staff remaining deployed overseas in our global network of embassies and high commissions to provide essential services to the British public, many diplomatic families and colleagues have been separated by the consequences of worldwide travel restrictions, lock-downs and isolation measures. [/p][p]Our global marathon seeks to virtually unite colleagues and family members in more than 100 countries in a day of shared endeavour, raising both cheer and much needed funds to help combat the global scourge of COVID-19. [/p][p]Somewhere in the world on Saturday 9 May a member of the British diplomatic family will be running or walking a mile each - on streets, in gardens and even in living rooms. Collectively they will complete a global relay filling every minute of a non-stop 24-hour marathon across the time zones. [/p][p]Each contributing a little. Together achieving a lot.[/p][p]#diplomile[/p][p]The funds we raise will go to:[/p][p]—NHS Charities Together: to support NHS staff and volunteers who are caring for COVID-19 patients in the UK;[/p][p]—UNICEF: to offer children and families in the UK and overseas critical protection, healthcare and education, and provide essential supplies to prevent the spread of COVID-19.[/p][p]Thank you for your generous support![/p]
