A charity which supports homeless and vulnerable people across Lincolnshire is appealing for members of the pubic to join ‘Team Framework’ at this year’s Lincoln 10k.

Framework, which supports 159 homeless and vulnerable people every night across the county, is looking for more runners and volunteers to join its team at the event on April 17.

It is one of several partner charities for the event, which this year is organised by Run for All.

Events and Community Officer, Sarah Cross, said: “We’re delighted to return as one of the partner charities for this year’s run and welcome people of all abilities to join our team.

“Our local accommodation services provide so much more than just a bed for night and work towards a much longer journey, helping to break the cycle of homelessness and guiding each person to live independent lives.

“By Joining ‘Team Framework’ you will enable us to provide more vital opportunities such as skills training, access to work, resources to move on – helping us make each journey that little bit easier.

“We welcome anyone who wishes to join our team whether it be volunteering or running.

“You will be supporting a local charity that makes a huge difference to the Lincolnshire community. All of our runners will receive a free running t-shirt and a great deal of support from our team.”

The charity has free spaces available. It does, however, ask runners to raise a minimum sponsorship of £100 in return.

To join the team to run or volunteer, contact Framework’s Fundraising Team on fundraising@frameworkha.org.
