Lockdown 10K 2020
Date(s) - 24/05/2020 - 01/06/2020
The Wellspring is the only frontline homelessness service in Stockport that anyone can access 7 days a week, it’s been open everyday for the last 29 years. Supporting hundreds of people out of homelessness as well as preventing hundreds more from becoming homeless. Wellspring receives no government or major grant funding. It’s mainly a community funded charity directly benefiting its own community.
Since the lockdown The Wellspring has been open everyday providing vulnerable people with food parcels and supporting them to isolate. It’s been providing hot food to street homeless people and despite supporting many people off the streets, the number of people sleeping rough has not changed if anything, it’s gone up.
The Great Manchester 10k run has been the biggest source of income for The Wellspring for the last 8 years. This year we had over 500 people registered and hoped to raise £60,000.
We are calling on Team Wellspring to answer our call to help plug this funding gap at these the worst of times for many people who live on the streets. Run or walk 10k on a route of your choice and fundraise for The Wellspring .
