Hello! My name is Dan Jefferson and I’m a GP Lecturer based in Newcastle upon Tyne. You might have heard that I’m fundraising to raise money for Teakisi CIC. This cause is very important to me because Teakisi was founded by a wonderful woman, Salha, and her story is inspiring. If we all want to tackle inequalities and social injustice in the future, then Teakisi will be pivotal in doing this as part of a community-based approach. In August we are tackling digital literacy, as well as Mental Health promotion. Please pledge money to help Teakisi to grow.

I have completed the Great North Run several times and all of the long distance training runs, combined with cycling and boxing at FIT club help to keep my mental health good. This time around undertaking a half marathon will be that much more fulfilling knowing that I can raise money for Teakisi.

I’m encouraged by the support I’ve already received, but I still need help reaching my fundraising goal of £500.

Would you be willing to make a contribution to my fundraiser? A gift of any amount would mean the world to me.

To donate, simply see below.

ps: It would also mean a lot if you could share my fundraiser link on social media. The more exposure I get, the faster I will reach my fundraising goal.

Sincerely,

Dan
