Your miles can make a difference

We are delighted to announce our Charity partner for 2020 will be The National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

Kate Hershkowitz, NSPCC Community Fundraising Manager for Sussex, said

‘We are delighted to be the chosen charity for the Mid Sussex Marathon in 2020. We would love those taking part to raise funds to support the NSPCC’s work, including our Speak out Stay safe programme which visits primary schools across Sussex, helping children aged 5-11 to recognise abuse, understand it’s never their fault, and know how to speak out if they need help. It costs just £3 to speak to one child, so any funds runners are able to raise by taking part in this unique event really will make a difference.’

The NSPCC is the UK’s leading children’s charity fighting to end child abuse.  Through our national and local services and campaigns, we help children who’ve been abused to rebuild their lives, we protect children at risk, and we find the best ways of preventing child abuse from ever happening.

Reasons to Volunteer #2

“There are a number of reasons why I volunteer. Volunteering can help gain confidence by giving you the chance to try something new and build a real sense of achievement. What you do also has a real and valuable positive affect on people, communities and society in general so you feel like you make a difference. Through volunteering I have met many different kinds of people and made a number of friends. It helps me to feel part of a community, something outside of friends and family.

All volunteering opportunities have allowed me to learn new skills and gain experience, sometimes there are even opportunities to gain new qualifications. I have found that through volunteering you can challenge yourself to try something different, achieve personal goals, practice using your skills and discover hidden talents. But most importantly you have fun! Most volunteers have a great time, regardless of why they do it.”
