Amia and Ellie, sisters and high school students, took on the challenge of running the distance from London to Paris to raise much-needed funds for Asylum Welcome.
The girls chose to raise money for our work with young refugees and asylum seekers. These young clients have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic – many have faced homelessness and hardship, with their legal status uncertain.
Amia and Ellie said “We are two sisters (15 and 17 years old) running to support young asylum seekers and refugees to achieve their aspirations. We are young students too and we want to support Asylum Welcome’s clients. We are all one Oxfordshire community!”
The girls have raised over £1,000 through their incredible fundraising campaign. Amia also raised funds for Asylum Welcome at the start of the pandemic, raising over £700!
