I am raising money to help my local charity to install solar panels and save money in energy bills during the summer!

Hi everyone and thanks for taking a second to read this page - I will keep it short!

If you know me, you might know that helping elderly people is something very close to my heart. It’s easy to end up with not much to do as you get older and life can be pretty lonely!

I am raising money for the charity I volunteer called Time & Talents, based in Rotherthithe. They run great programs to help elderly people from our community to socialise, have fun and stay active.

The problem is the charity is based in an old building (it used to be a mortuary!) and has high running costs. To mitigate it we are raising money to install solar panels and reduce energy bills in the summer. That is exactly how you can help! We need in total almost £8k but I am aiming for a little less: only £300.

As a crowdfunder multiplier, I am setting myself a running challenge: I will run a mile in January for every £3 raised. My goal is to raise £300 = running 100 miles.

Do you think I can make it? Buy some miles then!

Watch the short video above for more details about Time & Talents' programs or click HERE to visit their website.

Grab me if you only have pocket money, that is very welcome too.

It's a bit like Tesco's slogan: every little helps!

Many thanks
