It's been a long time coming but the 2021 London Marathon is finally here!
I'm running to support Norwich International Youth Project - a local charity where my daughter works as part of a small team to offer English classes and youth group activities to young asylum seekers and refugees aged 11-25.
Established in 2002, NIYP continues to welcome young people from across the world, providing a weekly drop in youth group - a safe place to meet friends, play games, learn new skills and share a meal; weekly English classes; outings and residential trips; and individual support.
I've been inspired by the work of this charity, and the impact it has on the lives of young people in our city. On Sunday 3rd October I'm going to run to raise funds and would appreciate any donations, encouragement and support you can offer!
