Fundraiser runs 325 miles over December to support the homeless in Winchester


Jon Flynn waved goodbye to 2019 by running cumulatively a mile a day for Trinity Winchester to support those who are homeless with limited food and shelter. For the 25 days of Christmas, Jon ran 1 mile on December 1st, 2 miles on December 2nd, 3 miles on December 3rd and so on until he ran 25 miles on Christmas Day. That made an
impressive total of 325 miles over the course of the whole challenge.

Jon Flynn said:

Running 24 miles on Christmas Eve and 25 miles on Christmas Day was tough, but I’m so glad I pushed myself!

Trinity is a charity providing support to homeless and vulnerable people in Winchester and the surrounding area. The charity operates from a day centre in central Winchester, offering practical and emotional support, to get people out of homelessness and ready to move onto independent living and into employment.

Sue Mckenna, CEO of Trinity said:

We are completely blown away by the effort and commitment Jon has put into this fantastic fundraising challenge over the Christmas period, and would sincerely like to thank him, his family and all his supporters for their generous donations and support.

If you would like to take part in a fundraising activity for Trinity, you can sign up to take part in one of the charities fundraisers such as Trinity’s Firewalk on Friday 28th February and Trinity Big Sleep Out on Friday 15th May. Or alternatively you can organise you own fundraising to support Trinity. For further information contact: Sharnna
