You’re Never Too Young (to fundraise for Apex!)
On Sunday 26th April 2015, we have a special 11 year old volunteer running the London Mini Marathon and chasing funds for Apex!
“My name is Lucca Watson-Quilter and I’m 11 years old. I recently visited ‘Apex-Works’ for ‘Take your relative to work day’. I sat in on a fundraising meeting, which gave me an idea to try and help them raise money, as I realised how difficult this was.
I am a national runner and four times Leicestershire Schools County Cross Country Champion and recently qualified to represent the East Midlands in the London Mini Marathon. I thought this would be a great opportunity to combine my marathon run with a chance to raise money for ‘Apex Works’.
My aim is to raise £750 to go towards the good work ‘Apex Works’ does.
(The London Mini Marathon is a 5km race that is ran on the same day as the London Marathon covering the last 3 miles of the marathon course. I hope to run the course in under 20 minutes.)”
Lucca needs your support!
To sponsor him simply click here to donate your money securely. Your donation would enable Apex to transform the lives of many disadvantaged people by supporting them into work.
What your donation will do:
£5 can buy seeds and bulbs for our Green Practice Lab, to enable somebody who faces barriers to employment to develop new skills and work experience in horticulture.
£16 covers a weeks travel costs for one of our volunteers to support us. Without them, our services couldn’t operate
£30 pays for hot food for homeless people during their outreach employment support sessions with our advisors.
£40 would pay for a catering uniform so our service users can complete a real work placement in our in-house café.
£250 enables somebody with a learning disability to participate in GOALS (Gaining Opportunities and Living Skills) 4 half days of training to build their confidence, set targets and achieve their career goals.
