Running 5 Kilometres, every day, for 15 days, raising money for food banks.
Finley Potter is 7 years old young boy and one of our swimmers in the Young Olympian group of the club, Finley was inspired by 100-year-old Captain Tom Moore (who has raised over 32 million pounds for the NHS so far). Finley plans to run 5km every day for 15 consecutive days to raise money for The Trussell Trust who support over 1,200 food banks.
Finley is concerned after watching the news that some families don’t have enough food to eat and that during lockdown this is much harder on lots of families. Finley would like to help by fundraising to help provide families with food.
Last year, food banks in our network provided more than 1.6 million emergency food parcels to people in crisis. More than half a million of these went to children. It’s not right that people can’t afford the basics. With your help, we can help end the need for food banks. As a nation, we expect no one should be left hungry or destitute. Illness, disability, family breakdown or the loss of a job can happen to any of us. With your help #ThisCanChange
