It's a very different Advent calendar this year as I will be completing 24 5ks, one each day, to raise money for the Alice Ruggles Trust. In true 2020 style, I will be joined virtually by 24 friends around the country who will also complete a 5k! The Alice Ruggles Trust has been set up in memory of my close friend Alice. Through completing my challenge I hope to spread the word and raise awareness of the Trust which exists to educate on the signs of stalking behaviour.
Alice was great, she was an amazing friend and had such a positive outlook. She was the life and soul of every social event, I have no doubt she would find the idea of me completing this challenge absolutely hilarious! Sadly Alice was the victim of a stalking campaign and was murdered in 2016. She is very missed.
No one should ever suffer how Alice did, please do read more about the important work the Trust does by following this link: https://www.alicerugglestrust.org
If you are kind enough to donate, please put your name in the comment, the site defaults to anonymous if not, and I won’t know who to thank!!
The Alice Ruggles Trust exists to raise awareness of coercive control
and stalking, to ensure that relevant legislation is effective and
adhered to, and to bring about lasting improvements in the management of
perpetrators and the protection of victims.
