An Annual 24 hour endurance event to raise funds for Leicestershire homeless charity, Falcon Support Services. The event invites you to set yourself or a team (8 maximum per team) a goal either running, walking or cycling 10K loops at Beacon Hill Country Park, from midday 2nd July to midday 3rd July 2016. You could even go the full 24 hours?
Falcon Support Services is supported accommodation for those that are homeless from Leicestershire. With over 100 people staying with us per year, approximately 4 people using the same room in a year period, we have a large turnaround with a high usage and need to ensure that we continue to provide high quality housing. We have a number of fixtures, fittings and furniture that would benefit from replacement or repair.
Funds will enable us to continue to provide safe, good quality, welcoming environments for the homeless. We will be able to provide a bed, mattress, bedding, wardrobe, desk and bedside table per room, being able to replace or repair items to a good standard increasing the longevity of the items of furniture.
Having good living environments not only provide safe and warm housing for those that require it, but also have a positive impact on a person's mental health and wellbeing. Accommodation of a good standard gives service users a sense of pride, self-worth and increases their self-esteem.
