Revd. Dr. Martin Ramsden, a leading member of our Discipleship, Ministry and Learning Network, will be running the Manchester Marathon to raise money for Shelter on 2nd April.
Martin is passionate about making homelessness a thing of the past but is dismayed by the scale of the challenge.Homelessness in the UK has doubled since 2010 and has increased by 30% in the last year.  Shelter estimate that 124,000 children have been homeless in the UK this winter.  Shelter receives over 3,000 calls for help every week and, at present, only has the capacity to answer 56% of those calls.
This really is an urgent need.  If you would like to sponsor Martin, then you can do so by going to this website: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com; click on 'make a donation and enter 'Martin Ramsden' into the box.
