Running Wilde for The Wellspring this May in the GMR 10K
April 6th, 2017
Wilde Analysis is excited to announce that we are taking part in the Great Manchester Run on Sunday 28th May to raise money for local charity The Wellspring.
Joining tens of thousands of people from all over the world, our energetic team of staff volunteers will be running the Great Manchester Run, the biggest of its kind in Europe. The start line is in Portland Street heading down through Trafford before looping past ITV Studios, back through Salford and finishing on Deansgate. The race saw over 35,000 people take part last year, raising a total of nearly £9 million for a large range of charities.
The Wellspring is a local charity based in Stockport town centre, providing support for rough sleepers and those who are at risk of becoming homeless. Free food and drink are offered along with access to showers and clean clothing. In addition, health services are made available with a drop-in GP and access to other specialist services such as drug and alcohol teams. A focus is made on developing skills with educational, computing, art and gardening courses that allow people to become independent.
The resource centre is open all year round and as little as £100 can help fund a meal service of up to 150 people for a month. The Wellspring costs around £365 to run the whole project for a day and supports people not just from Stockport but from surrounding areas including Manchester, Tameside and Salford.
We welcome any of our clients, partners and friends to support the excellent work of this charity. Donations can be made via:
We will be continuing to support The Wellspring with future initiatives. For a further look at the help they provide, please visit www.thewellspring.co.uk
