Read on to find out what Graeme is doing this weekend (10 July 2021) to raise necessary funds for the Isle of Wight Foodbank, but before you do, we’d like to say a massive thank you Graeme and do hope the challenge goes well!
Hello there and well done for making it this far. Grab a bacon roll and keep on reading…
I am running around the IoW on the 10th July to raise money for my local food bank. (https://ultrachallenge.com/isle-of-wight-challenge/)
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems
In 2020/21, The Trussell Trust’s Foodbank Network provided 2,537,198 three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis. Of these, 980,082 went to children.
I love running and I love food, they both seem to go hand in hand and to keep everything balanced I end up doing more of both. I, like you I am sure, do not go to bed wondering if there will be breakfast in the morning – debilitating to say the very least and we can help.
I am raising money for my local FOOD BANK to help those I probably walk past on the street every day living in this poverty.
Please join me by chipping in 1p for every Km I will run (106)
We really appreciate all you are doing Graeme. Many thanks from the Isle of Wight Foodbank Team!
