Story

Welcome to my give.net fundraising page. Your support is SO much appreciated.

I was taking on the challenge of running the Manchester Marathon in March. This has been postponed to next year due to Covid. So now on the 4th October I am running the 'virtual' 40th London marathon instead so I can earn the amazing sponsorship money that has been donated, and Embassy can start using the money. Inspired by the amazing work of Embassy homeless bus I am raising money for this great charity. I volunteered on the bus until it closed due to Covid. It is now supporting men into permanent accommodation in Manchester with resettlement support to help them break the cycle of homelessness. 

Embassy works with 8 companies to get men into full time work and the full-time resettlement worker helps guests into a safe place to stay and supports them for months after housing. 🚌

Please help me raise money for this great charity. Thanks! 🙂 🏃‍♀️xx



Embassy

Restoration starting with rest:

We are a Christian charity in Greater Manchester that restores the lives of homeless people by helping them off the street into work and a home.

Launched in 2019, Embassy used a re-purposed tour bus to provide emergency shelter and support to vulnerable adults, however we've reinvented what we do because of covid closing UK shelters.

We now rent 3 houses, providing 11 residents at a time with their own room - something many have dreamed of for a long time. Our 4 resettlement workers teach them to budget, shop and cook whilst mentoring, discipling and guiding them through a recovery course. We then aim to find them employment through our corporate partners and we find and help them sustain permanent accommodation with aftercare, with no need for council housing or benefits.

If you share our vision of displaying Jesus' love by providing a community, job and home so our residents can make a fresh start, please support us by making a donation. Thank you.
