SALFORD MAN WALKS FOR MUSTARD TREE
 

Star date: 26th March 2012

WALKING FOR HOMELESS

This Sunday, 1st April, Salford's Marc Frobisher will begin a 230 mile sponsored walk from Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland to The Mustard Tree homeless charity in Manchester. Marc aims to raise money for the charity which helps the marginalised and homeless, and which has recently opened up new premises in Eccles.

Full story here…


"I never want to feel complacent with my life because there's always someone living in poverty" explains Swinton's Marc Frobisher, as he attempts a sixteen day sponsored walk from Berwick-upon-Tweed to The Mustard Tree in Manchester.

When Marc begins the walk it will be exactly four years since he began volunteering at the charity which helps the homeless and people struggling to get by in the current times.

"The Mustard Tree is there for the homeless and the marginalised" says Marc "We do soup runs for the street homeless and emergency food parcels for people on low incomes. We have a food store of non-perishable goods which has relied on people donating at Harvest Festivals. But we can't just rely on that so if I can walk and raise money we can actually buy food for the store.

"If someone donates £5 towards my target that will buy fifty tins of value beans that we didn't have before" he adds.

The Mustard Tree charity began in 1993 handing out a few sandwiches and some soup to the homeless but now has warehouses and over ten thousand clients in Salford and Manchester. There is a growing need, which is why Marc is plodding from Holy Island in Northumberland, over Hadrian's Wall and through the Pennine Way back home to raise his target of £1000.

"I wanted to do something special because it will be four years of volunteering on April 1st" he explains.

Marc is about to do something special for everyone.
