Melvyn Walmsley's Sponsored 10k Run for Lovey Foundation (UK), Sunday 10 March
Melvyn - aged 68 - runs 6.2 miles for Lovey Foundation (UK) in a Ghanaian primary school uniform in the West Worthing 10k (photo: after the 2016 Brighton Marathon 10k).
The money raised is for Lovey Foundation (UK) - Secretary Yaa Asare - to send school uniforms, bags, sandals and stationery to colleagues in rural Bawku, Ghana, so child labourers can, instead, be supported into at least primary school education. Since 2013, 147 children have benefited; the first 10 are in the group photo. (The Foundation has been one of the church's charities of the year.)
To sponsor Melvyn before or after the race please:
1. Sign his sponsor form or
