Matthew Project charity workers go extra mile

Break through the banner pictu2010: A team of runners from a local Christian based charity will join over 2,700 others as they take part in the Norwich half marathon on 28 November.


Staff members and friends from The Matthew Project will be taking part in the Larkin Gowen City of Norwich half marathon in support of the Norfolk drug and alcohol project, which works with adults and young people throughout Norfolk and provides a specialist service for young people under 18 in Suffolk.


The race starts and finishes within the Norfolk Showground and follows a route through the villages of Easton, Colton and Marlingford and the centre of the Easton College campus.

Beth Hodder one of the runners said, "Myself, Fiona, Luke and Darren are going for a run and we hate running! we have decided to do half a hog and run the Norwich half marathon for The Matthew Project! You can support us by donating a little bit of money for our epic journey around Norwich".

The Matthew Project reaches over 20,000 young people and 6,000 adults each year.
