Tom has been involved with Shelter in a professional capacity in the past, working on pro bono cases in order to assist people who were either at risk of homelessness, actually homeless or in crisis need. The charity’s mission is to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing. In its most direct form, this is by way of free advice and representation to those most in need.
Commenting on Shelter, Tom said: “I believe very passionately that the work they do is vital, particularly in difficult economic times and given the ever deepening cuts to legal aid, they provide a truly vital service to those in real need.”
At the time of writing, Tom was at 94% of his fundraising target (£1,700). Donations of any amount to help Tom reach his goal would be gratefully received, and can be made online at: http://www.justgiving.com/Tom-Bailey5.
Update: Congratulations to Tom for successfully completing the Marathon in 5 hours!
