#Helpusfly Being a charity is always a challenge and although we do receive some funding to deliver our services, we also rely heavily on donations and on our own fundraising to help to keep our services going. Did you know that 37% of our services are not funded? That is why we need you to Helpusfly!

Stoke Running

Stoke-on-Trent Festival of Running

On July 15, 2018, the city will come alive with a host of running events suitable for everyone from the seasoned marathon runner to younger people hoping to find a lifelong love of pavement pounding.
The event will see racers of all ages and abilities taking in a host of iconic sights of the city with races leaving both the bet365 Stadium and Vale Park. Runners can enjoy five main races: a Full Marathon, a Half Marathon, a 5k Run, a Fun Run and an Oatcake Run.
Lee Parrish and Steven Talbot are kindly raising funds for The Dove Service by taking part in the Half Marathon.

We managed to catch up with Lee during his preparations for the race and he stated

“The Dove Service was a big factor because I find fundraising for a charity that you  know, or especially family and friends who have been involved in the organisation,  more personal and drives us on to raise as much as possible for a great cause”.

If you would like to help Lee & Steven in raising funds for the Dove Service, then you can donate by clicking on the links to their individual “Just Giving” Pages.
