Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page.  As a team we are running an epic 650 miles to raise money for orphans and needy children around our world. [/p][p][b]What's the cause?[/b][/p][p]The Ebola outbreak devastated many lives back in 2014 and Sierra Leone was one of the worst hit countries.  This is a country that has already been through so much, but there is hope.  We want to be a small part of bringing hope where our feet might tread.[/p] [p]In February 2016 I (Michael Scott) visited Heaven Homes in Sierra Leone.  This orphanage has taken in children orphaned by ebola. While I was there I met some amazing children and had a chance to see the incredible work being done.  I decided that I wanted to make a difference in their lives and to play my part in helping.  All donation made to support us will be used to support these orphans and so many others like them who are being helped by Operation Orphan.[/p][p]Operation Orphan is a UK based charity, working in countries across the world including UK, Northern Iraq, Nepal and Eastern Europe. By keeping children warm, safe, healthy and learning [url=http://www.operation-orphan.org]Operation Orphan[/url] aims to give children hope for a brighter future!  [b]100% of the donations received by the charity will go directly to the projects. [/b] To find out how they do this and to see more about the charity have a look at their website - www.operation-orphan.org. [/p][p][b]The Tour[/b][/p][p]The first 576 miles of the tour will be completed in the UK over 3 days, we will then fly to Sierra Leone to run the final leg, finishing up at Heaven Homes.[/p][p]Currently the running team will be: Michael Scott, Tim Davies, Andrew Smith, Neil Marsh, Paul Mccormick, Daniel Monie, Edward Hanania, Tom Burton, Roelof Van Emmenis and Melissa Cullen.[/p][p][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Operation Orphan. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][/p][p][lt]img
