Why do we need this support?
Matthew’s House, like most things in life, costs money to run. Thankfully we are grateful to our supporters that have always understood this. Without funds we cannot offer the hospitality and hope we want to in the city.
Each year the Swansea Half Marathon is one of our largest fundraising events and has been such an encouragement to our work. The money raised is vital to enable Matthew’s House to keep providing both hope and hospitality that is increasingly needed, now more than ever in our city!
The Half Marathon has been rescheduled for November, but the demand on volunteer time and funds, just like every winter, will be at its peak then as the months from October to January are always our busiest.
This means that Matthew’s House won’t be able to commit as we normally do to the new date of the Swansea Half Marathon, because we must focus first and foremost on the most vulnerable people in our city on the hardest months of their year and that is our priority.
