Welcome to my fund raising page to raise money for a fantastic and very worthy cause - NSPCC.  I'll be running over 26 miles through the streets of London in April 2011 to raise £3000.

NSPCC are a UK charity with one aim - to stop cruelty to children.  Having two of the little darlings myself I know how dependant they are on their carers and how devastating it must be for them to be unloved or suffering.  NSPCC set up Childline over twenty years ago as just one of the ways to help children.

ChildLine is the NSPCC's free and confidential, 24-hour helpline for children in distress or danger. Trained volunteer counsellors comfort, advise, support and protect children and young people who may feel they have nowhere else to turn.

£4 = could ensure that, when a child plucks up the courage to ask someone for help, we are there to answer their call.
£42 = could pay for a child who may have nowhere else to turn to receive confidential, one to one counselling about any issue that's important to them. 
£1,600 = could recruit and train a volunteer ChildLine counsellor, who in their first year will be able to help up to 200 children through their worries and distress.

The training is hard work - I'm up at 5.30am 4 days per week to get into shape, and I've been training now since September.  I'm now regularly running 8-10 miles each time, and getting up to the dizzy heights of 18 to 20 miles on sundays!

Getting out of bed has never been so hard, especially when the weather turns bad, but it is a worthwhile cause and I want to put in a good time!

So please please please donate as much as you can, it is for a brilliant cause and you would go a huge way to providing comfort to vulnerable children across the UK.
