Hello, thanks for visiting my page. I am running the Eden Project Half Marathon on 9th October to raise money to send kids in Madagascar to school. Its the first time I have attempted something like this so your support is much appreciated!

I am fundraising for the Blue Ventures school scholarships in the remote fishing village of Andavadoaka and neighbouring communities. Just £20 is enough to sponsor a child to attend school for an entire year. With this money, a child will receive a full year’s scholarship along with books, pencils and everything they need for class.

My aim is to raise enough money to send 10 kids to school for a year - that's a target of £200.

With your support more children and more communities can benefit from the power that comes from a good education. The idea is that education can slow runaway population growth which in turn reduces pressure on the reef ecosystems.

We volunteered on the Blue Ventures conservation project in Madagascar for our honeymoon and have seen first hand the fantastic work that they do with the community. Visit my blog, the dive hub for more info about the projects.

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.
