As one of Matthew Douglas’ Directors, Russell has been running most Saturday mornings in Reigate Priory park in order to be able to support a very worthy local cause (and obviously to try to keep fit!).
LeatherHead Start is a former Night Hostel and began offering the following services as of June 2011:
- Emergency, direct access, short-
term accommodation for homeless men and women over the age of 18.
- Accommodation for one established couple
- 24 hour support
- Individual key-
- A Learning Development programme, tailored to individual needs
- Referral and resettlement into move-
- A tenant support service after resettlement in the community
As part of Matthew Douglas’ commitment to helping with worthy local causes, Russell can be seen here giving to Angela Carter, Managing Director of LeatherHead Start, a cheque for £1,300 (i.e. 26 Parkruns, £50 per run). The money will be used to pay for 8-week one-to-one counselling sessions for those residents in most need.
