We are so excited that Ollie has taken on the challenge of running the 26.2 miles amongst some of the most famous London landmarks to raise funds for our work in the Mole Valley, Tandridge, Reigate & Banstead and Epsom & Ewell area with young people.

Preparing for the London Marathon on the 21st April, Ollie hopes to raise upwards of £2000 which will be used to offer  counselling to those who would otherwise find the cost barrier to accessing support.


“I’m running for Relate, who are an amazing charity, whilst the charity is well known for its work with couples, nowadays over a third of its work is supporting young people through times of difficulty. Young people may be facing difficult times and need support to address issues such as parental separation, bullying, eating disorders, social media, relationships, low self esteem, loneliness at University and exam stress, to name just a few.

The counselling they provide offers a vital safe and confidential space where the young person can talk about difficult issues without feeling judged and they can develop coping skills, build resilience and improve relationships.

As a young man I have witnessed how challenging life can be for young people and how difficult it can be to talk about things that are bothering you. If you can sponsor me to do this challenge, no matter how much, I would be very grateful.”
