‘I first went to Kyra in search of support in managing the long term after effects of domestic abuse and was blown away by the range of free activities, workshops, drop-in sessions and courses available for all women and especially for women dealing with struggles and difficulties in their lives.
The volunteers work really hard to make sure there’s a safe environment for members and do a fantastic job offering encouragement and a listening ear. There’s always a friendly face and the kettle is always on! I am so glad that I found them.
I think Kyra is a really important place not just for the women who go but for their families and loved ones and the wider community. As ever they rely on charitable donations to keep the centre and services running so I would like to raise as much money as I can to support them as they have supported me.’ Heather
Around 2,000 runners are set to take part in this largely flat and fast race on Sunday 8th October at 10:15am. Starting and finishing at the University of York, the route heads into the city centre and out into the Yorkshire countryside before returning for an electric finish at the university.
If you want to follow Heather as she makes her way around the course there is a marathon tracking app, which can be downloaded from the App store or Google Play by searching ‘Yorkshire Marathon’.
