Team from Touchstone run the Bath Half Marathon
A team of runners from Touchstone will be taking part in the Bath Half Marathon this week to raise funds for local charity Developing Health & Independence (DHI).
DHI is a Bath based charity who help people out of the cycle of homelessness, social isolation and drug or alcohol misuse. DHI turn the lives around of 8,000 disadvantaged people in the South West.
The Bath Half Marathon takes place on 15 March and is now in its 36th year.
Touchstone’s fundraising efforts are a continuing of our partnership with DHI, most recently worked we worked with them to refurbish an empty property for a family of Syrian refugees.
Touchstone’s Oli Marshall said “As soon as I heard Touchstone were participating for DHI I felt a real urge to get involved. The help they provide to vulnerable people in the local community is invaluable and makes a real difference to people’s lives.”
Our team of nine runners have demonstrated their passion for DHI; training in tough conditions, conquering the gale force winds and rain brought by Storm Dennis.
Rosie Phillips, Chief Executive of DHI said: “We are thrilled that Touchstone have decided to run for DHI. Not only are they raising funds for us, but they are helping to generate much needed awareness of homeless and drug/alcohol misuse in the communities that they live and work in.”
