Why me? have completed our first ever team sponsored event! On Saturday, our team of fundraisers ran over 35km at the Lee Valley Velopark in London, to raise money in support of Why me?’s work to transform lives through Restorative Justice. 

We want to say a big thank you to our runners! We’re so proud of their achievements, and their impressive finishing times – 



By taking part in this race, our fundraisers have raised an incredible £1,315 so far, thanks to the kind donations from 50 supporters! This is a huge achievement and will allow us to deliver comprehensive Restorative Justice to more victims of crime. As a small charity, all of the donations we have received will make a huge difference and enable more people to experience the life-changing benefits of Restorative Justice.

It’s not too late to congratulate our team by donating via our Just Giving page. Click ‘Give Now’ to donate any amount, or scan our handy QR code…
