Brighton-based comedian and TV host Zoe Lyons has today kicked off a 100km run from London to Brighton to raise vital funds for the Sussex Beacon, which provides specialist care and support for people living with HIV.
At the time of writing, Zoe has raised an amazing £1,584 and there’s still time to donate! Zoe said: “I’m having a classic mid-life crisis and have decided to take on a huge challenge by running from London to Brighton. Yes it is an insane idea but let’s put it to good use and help me raise some money for the Sussex Beacon.
“I was supposed to take part in this event last May but like so many things it got postponed to this year. A big thank you to those who already donated last year… You will still get the run out of me! I know times are tough for people so I’m asking for as many small donations as possible. Even £1… lots of little bits make a big difference.
“The Sussex Beacon relies on charitable donations to develop and improve the services provided to people living with HIV. They provide treatments similar to other community hospitals including intravenous medication and intermittent infusions. Increasing the services available to clients, reduces the need to use acute hospital beds and allows care to be given in a more relaxed and therapeutic environment.
“Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
“Thank you so much… I will probably lose a toe!”
