Faith Kenny, one of our volunteer coordinators, has signed up to run the ABP Southampton Half marathon and raise funds for Communicare to help those in need in the city of Southampton who are largely socially isolated.
Since starting working for Communicare in Southampton back in September last year Faith has really enjoyed getting to know our clients and volunteers and loves hearing their stories about the differences being made in their lives through the services that Communicare provides. Working very closely with these people and knowing how long our waiting list is to match clients with befrienders and drivers she has felt impassioned to do help towards the continuum of the services as well as in the hope that more people will get to hear about what Communicare does by participating in this event.
Faith has been a keen runner for some time and she felt that this is one practical way she can help our clients but also do something she is able to do and have fun doing!
She has started her training and is raring to continue this good discipline in preparation for the big race day which is on Sunday 22 April. The link is here if you would like to donate to her fundraising page.
