Last month I completed a Great Run Solo Accumulator Challenge and decided to raise money for The Trussell Trust.
In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. We support more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face. Between April 2019 and March 2020, food banks in our network provided a record 1.9 million food supplies to people in crisis, an 18% increase on the previous year.
I have raised over £12,000 for The Trussell Trust and the Just Giving page is still open. You can still donate HERE.
ALSO! on 23rd December you can see the Christmas Special of Ghosts on BBC1 at 8.30pm. I can't wait for you to see this episode! Happy Christmas!
