Big thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far but I need to raise more money for Action For Children. I am going to be running the Budapest Marathon (tomorrow!) and also taking part in the charity sleep-out event Byte Night on 8 October. I know that times are tough financially for a lot of people right now but anything you can spare would make a big difference to the charity.
Each year, at least 75,000 children and young people experience homelessness. One in three attempt suicide and 1 in 7 young runaways are physically or sexually assaulted (this figure rises to almost 1 in 2 after a week).
With your support, not only can the charity help keep thousands of children and young people off the streets and away from the risk of physical and sexual assault, it will also help them build better lives with secure accommodation, education and training opportunities.
