Why Run For Us
Your sponsorship will help to raise vital funds to support the London Irish Centre’s work with the Irish community in London.
Each year we help thousands of vulnerable Irish people, from giving advice to a young emigrant who is struggling, to providing outreach services to an older Irish person who is isolated and in need. Last year we helped over 13,000 individuals and we need your help to continue this important work.
‘The London Irish Centre embodies what Irish people do best – those that have, helping those that need. I’d encourage everyone to support their work.’
Patrick Kielty, Comedian
