Penny Appeal

Penny Appeal is an international humanitarian organisation, working in over 30 crisis-hit countries to provide poverty relief – including emergency aid, orphan care, water solutions and other programmes that are pathways out of poverty.

We now also work here in the UK, helping those vulnerable communities, families and individuals. Our mission is simple – to transform lives and empower communities through effective immediate aid and long-term sustainable projects.

As an official charity partner we’re running the Coventry Half Marathon in aid of the Rohingya Crisis. An estimated 500,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to neighboring Bangladesh following violence in Myanmar. The number is rising. With your help, we can provide aid where it is most needed and show these people that the world still cares about them.

“We’re very excited to be official charity partners again. We’ve had over 100 runners participating in the last few years raising over £80,000, so it’s a big event for our calendar.

We are saving and transforming lives in over 30 crisis hit countries worldwide but more importantly working to tackle poverty close to home, even here in Coventry, so it’s important for us to have that local support too.

After the disappointment of the 2018 race cancellation we’re really looking forward getting on the road again.

Personally I’ve run the race every year since 2011 and I love being part of such an amazing event in my home city.”
