Having promised ‘never again’ after struggling through hail, rain, wind (and some sunshine!) on a 15-mile Balmoral charity run round Balmoral Castle Estate last April…I am just 10 days away from doing a 15-mile Balmoral charity run for Zarach!

Zarach is the charity the See Media team has chosen to support in 2024 as part of our 10th anniversary celebrations. The Leeds-based charity was set up in 2017 by a Deputy Head Teacher who wanted to take action to address the increase in kids she saw struggling at school. Zarach sources beds and basics for children in poverty to help them eat, sleep and learn – it provides a ‘bed for every head’.

Read more about Zarach and why we are supporting them in this blog by my colleague, Stacey.

Raising £500 for Zarach

As a team, we aim to raise at least £500 to support Zarach. This will provide many ‘bed bundles’, but we hope to be able to do much more than this. My 15-mile charity fundraising run is just the start. See Media colleagues are planning a range of other fundraising and profile-raising activities with Zarach. We are also working with Zarach to donate our team’s time to support its PR and social media work.

Any support you can give to help Zarach’s essential work is greatly appreciated. You can donate here through our Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/page/see-media-ltd-zarach2024 .

Help us towards our target

Keep an eye on our social media for updates from my run. I’m hoping to raise £250 so please donate what you can – thank you very much!
