Charities

Run the windsor half marathon for one of our associated charities.

Windsor Homeless Project – Windsor Christian Action

Registered Charity 1154308

WCA support vulnerable people in the Windsor community, so that they have access to help, food, a safe base, and a bed for the night, as well as the opportunity to start the process of rebuilding their lives. Our projects include Windsor Homeless Project, Windsor FoodShare, Windsor Street Angels all of which are based out of our new HQ The Alma Beacon.

You can help support Windsor Homeless Project this year whose ethos is to Engage, Empower and Rebuild the lives of people in our community who are rough sleeping or homeless. In 2023 their dedicated team of staff were able to provide long and short term help to those most in need as well as serve over 3600 hot lunches in Central Windsor. The move in December 2023 to The Alma Beacon allows additional opening hours and the opportunity to provide more lunches, as well as space for external agencies to help with, podiatry, counselling, training programmes, medical treatments, art classes and much more.

Taking part in this year’s marathon and raising money for Windsor Homeless Project will help us continue to provide a service that really does change lives for the better!

Battersea

We aim never to turn away a dog or cat in need of help, caring for them until loving new  homes can be found, no matter how long it takes. We are champions for, and supporters of, vulnerable dogs and cats, determined to create lasting changes for animals in our society.

In 2016 we cared for around 7,000 animals of which 1,600 were at our site in Old Windsor. We simply could not provide this level of care without the support of people like you.
