Event Date: December 2020

 

Be a STAR and support The Salvation Army this Christmas.

 

Choose your distance to run – be it 5K, 10K, a marathon or something else, and set up a Justgiving page here so that your family and friends can sponsor you.

 

All runners will receive a virtual medal and our top 5 fundraisers will receive a #TeamSallyArmy T-shirt*

The Salvation Army will have 650 churches and community centres supporting the community this Christmas. All funds raised will make a significant difference to the lives of those most vulnerable. Whether this is someone who is experiencing homelessness, rescued from human trafficking or suffering from addiction, it will give people the kind of ‘hands up’ that William Booth talked about in the earliest days of The Salvation Army.

 

Here are some examples of what your support could do:

£20 - could help us keep our food banks stocked and open so we can provide essentials to people in need.

£45 - could provide 1 hour of support work for 5 homeless people in one of our residential centres (Lifehouses).

£114 - Could help to keep our safe and supportive community centres open all year round, for children and families who are struggling to cope
£800 - Could enable all residents of a safe house to go out for Christmas dinner and a show, making a memory to last a life time
