Event: London 10K 2019

The newly branded London 10k, returns to the streets of Westminster for 2019. It is the ultimate tour of Central London, where runners pass by iconic landmarks including Trafalgar Square, the Embankment, Big Ben and more, on closed roads. This headline running event will include a British Street Party – with a twist! In addition to a flat, fast 10K past London’s famed sites, there will be music at every kilometre encouraging runners to pound the streets to the beat.

Located in the heart of Westminster, we’re one of the UKs busiest homelessness centres, working in direct contact with vulnerable homeless rough sleepers all year round. Being a local organisation, we don’t have the overheads that other’s do, and can promise you that 91p in every £1 will be spent on helping homeless people. Running for us means you will be directly supporting the homeless people who need your help most, through our services which enable people to access housing, employment training, and professional support to overcome personal issues.

What support will we give you?
We’ll be sending you a high-quality running vest, personalised with your name.
We can also help with advice on training and support to achieve your fundraising target.
On the day, we’ll be down there with bags of enthusiasm to help motivate you and cheer you on!

What difference could you make?

  • £100 could fund 4 full initial assessments for newly homeless people, creating their action plans and giving them access to hot nutritious meals, showers, laundry and GP services
  • £350 could enable a vulnerable homeless rough sleeper to have a course of specialist one-to-one mental health support sessions which will help them to positively cope with their problems and move forward. Considering that approximately two thirds of homeless people living on the streets have mental health problems which are often severely hindering their ability to move on from the streets, that is a massive contribution.
