Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers

Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers

It is almost a tradition here at SDCAS that some of our clients, volunteers and patrons are running as a team in the 10k London Vitality Run to raise money for the Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers.

Due to funding cuts (through which we lost £38,000) we are this year even more reliable on private donations and sponsoring events like the run. Our target for the run is £ 3,000 so we were wondering if one of you would like to join our team of runners this year as we still have one free place? And it would be amazing if you could help our runners to raise money for the Day Centre!

Please see the link to our JustGiving webpage below, where people can easily donate online.

Many thanks,
