Going the extra mile…
We are pleased to announce that in 2019, for the first time ever, The Unite Foundation will have a runner in the Virgin Money London Marathon!
Priya Clarke, a long-time supporter of care leaver and estranged students, has bravely volunteered herself to take on the gruelling 26.2 miles on 28th April next year which just happens to be her birthday!
The average scholarship is approximately £6,500 per year so around £540 would provide accommodation for one of our scholars for a month. Priya will be using these “monthly markers” as fundraising targets – when one month is covered, she’ll aim to cover two months, when two months are covered, she’ll move on to a third month!
We’ll be sure to update you with Priya’s progress on the website. If you would like to donate to her fundraising total please follow this link… https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/PriyaClarke1
