Why run for Oxfam

Doing the Edinburgh Half? Your £250 sponsorship could provide 17 people with an emergency kit. When disaster hits, this kit can be a real lifeline. It’s a bucket full of hygiene essentials, from soap to sanitary towels, to help people who have lost everything to stay clean and healthy. Not only is it a disease-beater, but being able to wash is a step towards getting life back to normal.
