St Francis Group team finish 5th in LandAid Midlands 10k
Our team at St Francis Group raised over £750 and finished in a very respectable 5th place out of 20 teams, enduring winds and difficult terrain during the LandAid 10k event in Longbridge on 13th September. The event was organised by LandAid Midlands and the funds raised will go to support local charity, St Basils.
St Basils works in Birmingham and the West Midlands helping young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, and ensuring that they have the support they need and a safe place to call home. All monies raised will be put towards their work to renovate an empty former nurses’ accommodation in West Bromwich for young people who have faced homelessness. The project will provide a home for 18 young people who despite working hard are unable to afford local rents.
