Caitriona Carney - Director of Community Services at the London Irish Centre

Ruth Melican - Wellbeing Services Health Navigator at the London Irish Centre

"I have recently joined the team at the London Irish Centre as Wellbeing Services Health Navigator. My role involves ensuring people are linked in with the appropriate services for their health needs and organising a varied programme of events and activities that enhance well-being and help to prevent social isolation. 
As a keen runner I jumped at the opportunity to take part in the Vitality London 10,000. Fundraising is so important to ensuring we can continue to make a difference, therefore, all donations will be gratefully received!"

Clare Matthews - Supporting the London Irish Centre charity 

"I am taking part in the Vitality London 10k to help raise money for the London Irish Centre Charity. As an Irish person in London I am keen to support the fantastic work that they do - from befriending services to arts and cultural events the organisation caters for the needs and interests of a wide range of people. All donations, however big or small, will go towards ensuring the continuation of these worthwhile services."

Daniel Lowe - Supporting the London Irish Centre charity 

“I do not work for the London Irish Centre but I hear all about the great work they do through Gemma. Another thing I hear from Gemma is that no tea can compete with Barry’s. Despite being very happy to take on the challenger, I was only supposed to be watching the run but have been roped in to taking park and will do my best for the charity!”

Gemma Kingston - Advice and Outreach worker at the London Irish Centre

"I work in the Welfare Advice and Outreach service of the London Irish centre. I am so proud to work here as I see every single day how our charity makes a real difference in people's lives! We help people with things as simple as as writing a letter to family back in Ireland to big issues such as preventing someone becoming homeless. I have seen how people's lives can be changed for the better due to the support of the charity. I also love how the charity really does care about every single person that comes through it's doors from clients to staff.

"I usually would not run to save my life (when my mother found out I was doing this 10k she said I better have a Defibrillator beside me throughout the whole 10k). Despite this vote of confidence, I decided to do this 10k and raise funds for the LICC as I know how vital any fundraising is. I also know that all money goes back into the charity and is spent on worthwhile projects and services.  Any support would be greatly appreciated!" - Gemma Kingston
