Damian Mellor: Turned 40 Years of age in August 2014, recently given up smoking after around 25 years and never run more than a few hundred yards since leaving school way back in 1990… It's now time to get into shape. I'll be running The Bristol Half Marathon 2014 & Supporting Cheddar Youth Trust.

I've chosen to help publicise and raise funds for Cheddar Youth Trust, and hope that I can be of some inspiration to those young and old, smokers or non smokers, that may be thinking of taking up a sport like running, in order to improve their health or simply keep fit. CYT could even help with funding for you to achieve professional level if you so desired!

In the words of Keith Herring, Chairman of CYT: "The Trust was launched in the year 2000 to mark the Millennium. It was badly needed because the funds from the only Charitable Trust in Cheddar helping young people, the Sarah Comer Trust, had after well over 200 years, been nearly exhausted. The new Trustees had to start from scratch to raise a large capital base fund from which grants could be made on the interest generated from that capital. Good progress has been made, but much more endeavour and support is needed to secure the target fund needed"...

The Trust's purpose is to help and encourage the young people of Cheddar to take great pride in their community and their own endeavours.

I'll do my very best and hope to be supported by everyone within the Cheddar Community – You can follow my training right here on this very page and in return for my efforts I would appreciate it if you would 'Like' and 'Share' my Facebook page, and when the time comes, donate to my chosen charity.
