Ellen’s Poppy Run!

Ellen Longmate, Learning Manager for R.E.A.L. Alternative Provision School in Mansfield, is running 50k or more between 26th October and 30th November in a ‘My Poppy Run 2020’ charity challenge!

Ellen has signed up alongside a virtual community of fellow runners to raise funds for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, which was founded to help those in need following a national crisis. Right now they are helping those who are isolated from family, facing homelessness, struggling to feed their children and are in financial crisis. The charity members are working tirelessly to ensure that those who have served are being looked after no matter what challenges they, and the country faces.

At the time of writing, Ellen has already completed 34.3km of her 50k target and raised £295 for the charity. What a brilliant effort! Go Ellen!
