Matt and Jenny Guilder
The London Marathon!
Online Total: £182.40
Offline Total: £0.00
Gift Aid: £45.60
We are so excited to be taking part in this challenge! Neither of us have ever run a marathon before so we're delighted/terrified at the prospect. When we're not running, Matt is mostly training to be a vicar or practising his stand-up comedy routine and Jenny is busy organising Matt and our two kids.
In 2011 Jenny was able to travel to Ethiopia with Compassion and see first hand the incredible work that this charity does.
Any money that we raise will go towards the Child Survival interventions in Togo. This will allow Compassion to support existing ventures and launch brand new child survival programs. Everyday a shocking 17,000 children under the age of five die, most from completely preventable causes. Compassion's child survival programs support mums and new born babies in a variety of ways. The first few years of a child’s life are vital to their development and through the Survival Programme, Compassion can reach the most vulnerable children even before they have been born.
Alternatively, you may like to consider becoming a child's sponsor? Compassion's approach to fighting poverty is highly focused and personal. It’s summed up in three simple words: Compassion for children. The charity shows every child they matter, linking them with one sponsor whose support gives them a hope and a future.
Thank you so very much for partnering with us!
