Dan Watson Reading Half Marathon 7th November 2021

13% Raised

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

I have decided to run the Reading Half Marathon in November. To keep me motivated (especially with training!) I have started this page and in doing so I'm hoping to raise as much money as possible for The Wokingham Foodbank. They are seeded by The Trussell Trust who operate foodbanks nationwide.

In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. The trust supports more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face. Between April 2019 and March 2020, food banks in their network provided a record 1.9 million food supplies to people in crisis, an 18% increase on the previous year and during the coronavirus pandemic food banks have seen need rise even further. 
I've been inspired recently by people such as Marcus Rashford who has used his platform to support important social issues in the UK. This is just one issue of many. My wife and I are huge supporters of The Wokingham Foodbank. We are the lucky ones. We've never been in a position where we've needed to use a foodbank but we try and go as regularly as possible to donate items. They exist because there are people who are struggling to feed themselves and their children...in the UK... in 2021. 

Our vision is for a UK without the need for food banks.

I appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
