#TeamOrange runners go the miles for meals
Ten of our amazing #TeamOrange volunteers took on a running challenge this weekend, hitting the streets of Leeds for a 10k race.
They ran the ‘Miles for Meals’, raising money to provide nutritious meals to the poor and needy through our Feed Our World programme.
Over £2,000 was raised by the team, which means 2,000 meals for people facing food poverty across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Haroon ‘The Mota-Vator’ Mota, Midlands Fundraising Manager, provided encouragement, and was impressed by everyone’s dedication to training during Ramadan.
Donations can be made to the team’s JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/Teams/PennyAppealLeeds10k
The next running challenge is a three-part series of races called ‘Half Marathons for Homes’ so sign up and get training now. You’ll get plenty of support and your very own #TeamOrange running t-shirt, not to mention help give orphans safe, happy homes.

Penny Appeal spreads smiles during hospital visit
As part of our Love Thy Neighbour UK work we headed down to University College London Hospitals this week to give gifts and offer moral support.
With our Serving in the Community bus packed full of toys and presents, we were able to give some joy to children and young people undergoing treatment on several of the wards.
Over 130 gift bags were handed out, but the smiles we received were countless!
Harris Iqbal, our UK Programmes Manager, said: “We feel honoured to have touched many hearts and helped create some special memories.”
