Lab Gibraltar is proud to support the “Sierra Leone Marathon”.
We were proud to contribute again to this year’s Sierra Leone Marathon in Makeny by supporting Phil Langley, Associate Director, Ibex Insurance Services, (www.everydayhero.co.uk/phil-langley) who raises money for a good cause called “Street Child”!
The Sierra Leone Marathon is the unique international marathon during which runners are united with one common goal: support the projects of the UK charity “Street Child”. The “Everydayheroes”, like Phil Langley, had the opportunity to visit, meet and draw inspiration from the very children and families they have been fundraising for – some of the most vulnerable children in the world.
“Street Child” believes that every child has a right to a safe home and an education. The organisation works in some of the poorest areas in the world and tries to give a chance to every child -a chance to go to school and learn – to offer them a better future. Since 2008, they have already helped over 100,000 children to go to school and enabled thousands of families to generate sustainable incomes so that their children can stay in education.
Lab Gibraltar sponsored a price for a raffle, organised by Phil Langley and with the support of Ibex Insurance, offering two weekend passes for the Gibraltar Music Festival.
“In 2014 the Ebola virus epidemic threw Sierra Leone into crisis again. Thousands of children were orphaned and families torn apart. Street Child led the Ebola orphan response, helping over 12,000 children impacted by the epidemic and we continue to support children who are still struggling.”
