A few of us are lacing up our trainers and logging lots of miles in preparation for the Deep River Rock Belfast City Marathon on Bank Holiday Monday 4th May 2015. We have entered a relay team to raise money for Mencap and its Big Step Forward Appeal.
Mencap launched the Big Step Forward Appeal in October 2014 to raise £1.7million to open its new Children and Families Centre. At the heart of the new centre will be the relocated Segal House nursery for 2 to 4-year-olds with a learning disability, autism and developmental delay. The new building will be on the site of the former Newtownbreda Primary School.
Morrow Communications provides PR support for Mencap's Big Step Forward Appeal, so we have seen first-hand just how special Segal House is to the children and their families. They have inspired us throughout the whole campaign and we can’t wait to see the finished building as we know it will be an amazing resource for families in Belfast and the rest of Northern Ireland.
You may already be committed to a charity of your choice but if the work of Mencap strikes a chord and you're interested in supporting our fundraising efforts, visit our Just Giving page.
