This year at Informed Financial Planning we have teamed up with CatZero to support them in their 30in30 Challenge!
In the last 10 days, Danny, who is CatZero’s director of sailing, has ran from Brighton through Greenwich and on to Cambridge and Boston. Today (02/10/2020) we will see Danny run from Grimsby through to Hull and from there he will carry on towards Durham, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Inverness before finishing in John O’Groats!
What has motivated danny to participate?
Danny, in his own words, says: “The ability for CatZero to help people on both sides of the Humber effect lasting personal change has been proven since our launch 11 years ago with hundreds of people of all ages and abilities assisted back into long-term employment or training. Such support will be needed more than ever in the coming months and years as people face uncertain times in many areas of their lives. There has never been a better time to raise awareness of how our charity is able to offer that support.”
What is the ultimate goal?
All of the money raised from Danny’s hard work will go towards the life changing ‘Full Families’ Programme that CatZero run.
The programme supports families, young people and their children who are in times of difficulty across the Humber Estuary. With recent events seeing us face times tougher than ever, with unemployment rates rising; self isolation and the increasing vulnerability of our local community, CatZero have seen this affect low income families the most, and their programmes aim to help where they can.
This programme currently runs across Grimsby and Hull, with plans to expand as CatZero aim to raise £72,000 this year to enable them to run 3 Full Families Programmes. You can read more on the programme here.
