Here is the full article:FIFTEEN people, including two local residents, will be running the Brighton Marathon in April to raise funds for Justlife, an Openshaw based charity. The centre on Ashton Old Road provides support to vulnerable people and those with complex and critical needs. A daily drop-in from 10am-12pm offers basic advice, an internet cafe, opportunity to chat and activities. A variety of workshops and sessions to help people build skills and move forward. Justlife partners with other services to offer healthcare, housing and employability support.
