Hi all,

Thank you for visiting my page!!

Yes you are correct in thinking that I have stupidly accepted the challenge of running the London Marathon in April next year (2017).

I have very slowly begun my training for the painful journey towards the fun filled 26 mile (42 km) run! And yes, it is true that I randomly decided to sign up to the marathon whilst on a 20 hour bus journey down the East Coast of Australia (I think that I was potentially just incredibly bored)!

Anyway, I have decided to run for a charity called Mind, which is a charity which supports people with mental health problems.  One of my very close friends works with the charity and I would love to be able to raise money for the great cause.

As you may be aware from the many campaigns running around on social media, 1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from Mental Health issues! Mind are an award winning charity which supports thousands of people per year through a number of different channels (phone lines, membership and networking, professional training and many other methods).

Mind have teamed up with the Heads Together campaign, which has been headed up by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.  Where they are campaigning to end the stigma around mental health.

By donating to this cause, your money will be used to help provide practical support to those who are suffering from many mental health diseases around the UK.

Thank you so much for visitng, it is much appreciated for any small or big donation towards this great cause and I will keep you updated with my progress!!
