For the last 12 months Elizabeth and I have been volunteering at the Cowley Child Contact Centre (Charity Number - 1072373, http://www.naccc.org.uk). This entirely volunteer-led service helps children spend time with parents who they may not get to see otherwise for reasons of relationship breakdown between their mother and father.
In January 2014, we will be taking on the role of managing the centre and the volunteers who help run it every 2 weeks. The biggest challenge to keep this service open is to be able to raise funds to pay for the rental payments for the rooms that we use for the sessions. On October 13th, I will be running the Oxford half marathon to raise money for the centre (Elizabeth will not be running as she will be 6 months pregnant). I will be joined by our great friend/surrogate daughter Clementine to complete the course.
I am currently registering this charity with mydonate.bt.com to allow us to claim gift aid on any donations. This unfortunately takes time so in the mean time I plan to collect all contributions and make one large donation through the site once registered to allow us to get the gift aid!
If you value the importance of having both a mother and father in the lives of children as they grow up then please sponsor us for this cause, Thank you!
