My page:

I've taken on the challenge of running in the 2017 London Marathon, raising funds for The Older People's Services at Blackfriars Settlement, my firm's (Charles Russell Speechlys) local London Charity Partner. 

Although I was born in South West London, I grew up in a small town near Portsmouth.  Four years ago I moved back to London and settled in the borough of Southwark. I've run four half marathons and one full marathon, and my preparation includes 4 runs a week and the occasional swim or cycle. I'll also be running the Richmond half-marathon in March to test out my race pace…  

I believe that the Blackfriars Settlement provides a vital service to older people living in Southwark. The Older People's Services have a number of projects to help improve the lives of marginalised older people - ranging from the provision of Older People's Clubs (including the Crusoe Club for the visually impaired) to befriending schemes. 

Blackfriars Settlement is a registered charity providing services to the community. By working with individuals it aims to create opportunities for them to achieve their aspirations. It offers a wide range of services and activities, supporting people to achieve their goals and improve their wellbeing. Its mission is to add expertise, encouragement and support to the efforts and achievements of local people and create opportunities for them to reach their educational, social and economic potential; to unite the contributions of local volunteers and community partners to achieve shared objectives; and to encourage funds into the community to deliver and support quality services for people of all ages.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. Your support is really appreciated and thank you for any donations.
