Thank you to everyone who has already taken part in the Turkey Trot! It has been great seeing your photos. There is still time to join in helping people experiencing homelessness in Hampshire this Christmas. Choose a day over the festive period to walk, run, pedal, scoot, waddle, sprint or potter 5K.

This festive fundraiser is designed to get people out and active, to lift spirits and give a focus over this extraordinary Christmas period. You can take part solo or as a household. Challenge friends and family and check in with them virtually on their progress.

Christmas can be a particularly tough time to be homeless. Loneliness, painful memories and missed loved ones can be hard to ignore. This year is even more challenging with the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Sadly, 2021 is likely to see an increase in homelessness, funds raised by the Turkey Trot will help us with plans to try and increase our accommodation to help meet the demand for our services.

You can set up a  fundraising page on a platform such as JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving or simply donate £5 (or more!) when you complete your 5K via text or online. See more information below.
