Connecting People Across Cultures

Bristol Half Marathon, September 2018

On September 23rd, 8 runners ran the Bristol Half Marathon to fundraise for our work with refugees and asylum seekers, raising an incredible £3,600 and far surpassing our original target. The money raised will be used to continue our programme of special events and trips for refugees and asylum seekers, providing a vital opportunity for people to relax, have fun and make connections during an incredibly difficult period of transition. 

A massive congratulations and thank you to all our runners - Mirna, Liz, Owen, Sian, Laura, Rick, Dan and Karen - for their time and effort, and a special mention for our Jordan rep Mirna, who flew back from Jordan to participate in the event!

Finally, an even bigger thank you to all those who donated - we couldn't continue doing the work that we do at Bridges without your kindness and generosity.
