We're running a marathon on 15th May 2021. It was going to be the Stirling Marathon, but this has now been cancelled, so we've been designing our own course around Edinburgh - that we'll share details of shortly.
Neither of us have done a marathon before. We're a little nervous but we're into the training and will give this our best shot.
It also seems a good reason to raise some funds - so we asked around to find out which community food projects are doing great things and need support - and settled on the Granville Community Kitchen, a grassroots community food hub in South Kilburn, London. Through their kitchen and garden, they empower the community through food-related activities, and reach out to marginalised people such as those with long term health conditions, learning disabled adults and those experiencing hunger and food insecurity.
We're aware that right now, in the panedemic, they are doing some amazing work through their Food Aid project, providing food parcels to those in need - and your donations will be very appreciated at this time.
If you want to find out more, visit their website: granvillecommunitykitchen.org.uk
I'll provide further information about their work, on this page in due course. And if you're lucky, some photos of us in training!
Thank you for your support,
Sam & Charlotte
