MJ's 2020 Sporting Challenges
As a current volunteer, my selected charity for 2020 is the Blackburn Foodbank. I'm looking to complete a series of sporting challenges throughout the year; in addition to numerous 10k runs, my aim is to complete a half-marathon, a 60 mile cycling sportive, and hopefully 3 rounds of white collar boxing!So, whilst i'm at it, I thought it'd be a good idea to raise some money.
Blackburn foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis in Blackburn. We collect non-perishable food which is donated by the public through churches, schools, and super market collections. Front line care professionals refer people to the foodbank with a voucher which is exchanged for 3 days worth of food. Over a chat, a meal and a drink we listen and signpost guests to other agencies for support. Blackburn foodbank is seeded by The Trussell Trust.
