Running For L'Arche!



Join us in supporting First-time Marathon Runners and Members of L'Arche Inverness Community, Holly Hiles; David Holdsworth; Peter Drozd and Thomas Lacroix, every step of the way as they run, perhaps, the most scenic marathon route in the British Isles.

The team will run the Loch Ness Marathon on October 7th to support the community's New Workshop Resource Centre Appeal - helping us to raise a further £222,976 towards Working Together ~ Transforming Lives.

Holly, David, Peter and Thomas are donning their running shoes to help fund the cost of building our this exciting and innovative resource, which houses 4 new workshop spaces, where 25 adults with learning disabilities, from throughout the Highlands, are being welcomed into meaningful work, training and support - regardless of age or ability. Each person welcomed is offered access to lifelong learning; the wider employment opportunities available in Inverness and the dignity of doing a good day's work - at every stage in their lives.

Sponsoring Holly, David, Peter and Thomas online is simple, fast and totally secure. It is a really efficient way to send your contribution. So please, sponsor our runners today and ensure that you can help them to transform lives, every step of the way. Simply CLICK HERE to make a contribution.


(If you dont like doing money things on the web, then we can accept sponsors by post.  Send to David Holdsworth, L'arche, Saorsa, 43 Mile End Place, INVERNESS, UK, IV3 8JH.  Please make sure it is clearly marked for this purpose and if its a Cheque make it payable to L'arche (not me!  LOL).  Also enclose your full name and contact details and if you are a UK tax player state if you wish to gift aid (if you do the Government will contribute to the charity aswell, so please do LOL).    Peace and Blessings).


THANK YOU - every penny helps us to continue building community with people with learning disabilities throughout the Highlands.

REVIEW:  THE FORGOTTENDavid's passion for his subject is quite clearly seen in the choice of text for this compilation. Even those who do not share his pacifistic view of Christianity are left in no doubt as to the author...
