Talk Straight team members tackled the Yorkshire Marathon Relay on Sunday 15th October for Leeds charity Zarach, which partners with schools to “give every head a bed”.
The charity works with schools to identify children living in bed poverty, and delivers bed bundles including new beds, bedding, pyjamas and hygiene products.
Team members Sallie Bewell, Victor Josi, Luke Watson, Lee Moores and Mark Hayden raised £600 and putting Talk Straight’s total raised for Zarach this year at £1,933.
Bewell said, “The 6.00 am Sunday morning start and 2 degrees temperature was a bit of a harsh wakeup call but the sun shone, the crowds were out in force and the team did a fabulous job of not just getting round the course but coming 23rd out of a field of 46 teams.”
The team is aiming to raise £3,000. TO see more about their fundraising visit: https://www.justgiving.com/page/talk-straight-zarach
