With the support of fundraisers like you, last year we helped 10,324 people and households in London alone through our helpline and face-to-face services.

Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference.

Huge thanks to you all for the support on the course and at the end. I had a great day, and really loved being part of #TeamShelter
