Running for JRS UK at London Marathon

The iconic London Marathon of 2022 has just come to an end Our very own Accommodation and Emergency Response Manager, Rhiannon successfully completed the 26.2-miles, and we were so proud to be cheering her on! We were inspired both by the energetic challenge that Rhiannon embraced, and by the cause of supporting refugees that her effort supported. Thank you, Rhiannon!

Rhiannon reflected on why she chose to support refugees by running the London Marathon:

“Any of us could become a refugee. And I think that in this country, our policies not only do not promote integration and success of refugees, but they actively prevent them from reaching their full potential and rebuilding their lives. I have seen the great things that refugees can achieve with the right support which is why I am raising money to fund the services that JRS provides.”

A huge thank you to Rhiannon for choosing to run the marathon and fundraise for the work of JRS in accompanying refugee friends.
