Melvyn Walmsley, 72, runs 72 miles to support 72 Ghanaian children into school

Melvyn (72) is running 72 miles between 18 February and 18 March to raise £5,184 for Lovey Foundation (UK) - reg. charity no. 1191631.  

This is to support 72 children of subsistence farmers in rural Bawku Municipal District, Ghana to realise their dream of attending school in Autumn 2023. Providing the necessary uniforms, sandals, exercise books and personal stationery now costs at least £72 per child.

Since 2013, with its Ghanaian partner organisation in Bawku, the charity has supported nearly 400 children (a majority girls) to realise their dream to attend school instead of being child labourers. 
Please sponsor Melvyn (with Gift Aid if you're a UK tax payer) either 
online here    
by sending a cheque, payable to Lovey Foundation (UK), and marked on the back 72 miles at 72 run to: Lovey Foundation (UK), Flat 4 Francislea, Colwell Road, Haywards Heath RH16 4EL 
If you're a UK taxpayer please also download, and then complete and enclose with your cheque, the charity's Gift Aid Declaration form (no signature required on this) 
(A sponsor form will also be available at  church on Sunday mornings during Melvyn's run.)
