On the run Again!

Anthony-Marathon-PhotoDear friends of Betel Manchester,

As some of you may already know Anthony Parkinson, director of Betel Manchester and ex addict, is on the run again! This time it’s the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon to raise funds and awareness for the work of the charity in the North West. The event takes place 24th April 2016.

Much time and effort goes into the running of and the training and preparing for a marathon. By the time Anthony gets to the day he will have accomplished hundreds of road miles and spent countless hours away from home. It really is no small sacrifice and no mean feat.

To that end we at Betel Manchester would ask you to consider thoughtfully (and prayerfully where you can!!) if you can give. We would also ask you to think big and be generous!

Also we would like to ask some of you to stand with us in a different way. For those who are able, we attach a sponsor form with some more information so that you might ask further afield in your local communities to try and generate extra support for this noble and worthy cause. Ask your family, friends, John the plumber, Aunty Joan, the bank manager, anyone you think might want to or be able to give to this.

The money will go to the vital work of Betel Manchester helping to rescue even more lives and towards the potential completion of the ongoing construction work at Hardy Farm Pavilion which will enable Betel Manchester to serve even more desperately needy people.

Or choose to partner with us and generate not only your own sponsorship but others too. Download a copy of the sponsorship form here. Sponsorship-Form LM2016

Thanks so much in advance for all your support past, present and future.
