I am taking part in Vitality London 10K on 27 May 2019 to save and change the lives of people who are homeless, because nobody should have to sleep on the streets.

People come to Glass Door when they are at an absolute crisis point, with nowhere else to turn. Glass Door welcomes everyone as their guest, giving them some stability before helping them make the necessary steps move off the streets for good.

They open their doors all winter, every night welcoming 100 homeless men and women with a hot meal and a safe place for them to sleep, away from the harsh streets of London. Please donate anything you can so they can to help London's most vulnerable people.

I'm Team Rector of the Parish of Mortlake with East Sheen and we host shelters in two of our churches during the week with volunteers cooking a hot meal and welcoming the guests. However Glass Door are not just putting a bandage on the problem but are helping people to turn their lives around and find housing, work and most importantly renewed confidence. I am running to raise money to support Glass Door in the amazing work they do and hopefully also to raise awareness of the problem of homelessness in London. Please give whatever you can afford. All donations of any amount are welcome.
