We’re supporting the Action Against Child Poverty Campaign and would love you to support it to.

February 27, 2018 // Rachel Ellis


This year the 2018 Bath Half’s official local charity appeal is the Action Against Child Poverty Campaign. This campaign is coordinated by St John’s Foundation and funds the Lifestyle Change Project which is a a three-year targeted initiative being delivered in partnership by six local charities to address child poverty within Bath and North East Somerset.

The charities involved are Sporting Family Change, the Southside Project, Wansdyke Play Association, SWALLOW, Mentoring Plus and Off the Record.

The Bath Half race organisers Running High has funded a short film for each charity involved in this campaign to help raise awareness about what they do and locally it is hoped it may encourage people to donate and as well as consider running to fundraise for these causes in the future.

There is an overall film which talks about the project which you can find here…
