Streetwork couldn’t do what it does without the people who fundraise for us. Their donations make that crucial difference when we are helping somebody break the recurring cycle of homelessness. Historically we received anonymous donations with a small note of encouragement from somebody who cares. JustGiving is changing that, creating a place where people can share their adventure and what motivates them.
In the last months Ellie, Kerrae, Matthew, and Robert raised over £1200 for Streetwork through running the Edinburgh Marathon and cycling the 188 Mile Dragon Devil Sportive.
We managed to catch up with Matthew who said:
‘I decided to raise money for Streetwork so they can continue their incredible work helping the most vulnerable and overlooked members of our society. I felt inspired by their organisation’s work with people in need to help them find a long term solution to homelessness. This is something I feel is desperately undervalued so I wanted to help anyway I could!’
