Angelus Mudrun – Fundraising Event – 22 March

Fundraising for The Angelus Foundation
 
Douglas Fairchild (Intern) is fundraising by taking the trenches challenge and running 5k through the mud and over obstacles Sunday 22 March 2015.

Douglas is fundraising for The Angelus Foundation a charity which works to safeguard children and young adults by raising awareness of the dangers of ‘Legal Highs’. These are chemicals which have resulted in the death and long term illness of many children and young adults in the UK and throughout Europe.

Many use the substances with the misconception that because they are legal they must be safe; unfortunately this is not the case. The reason ‘Legal Highs’ are legal is due to manufacturers slight alteration of chemical compound of existing illegal substances and creating new substances which do not fall under the 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act.

The Angelus Foundation lobbies to change UK legislation in order to ban Legal Highs across the whole of the country. To find out more about the charity’s work visit the websites bellow:
