This 22nd April 2012, I ran the London Marathon, in 3 hours, 52 minutes and 5 seconds, on behalf of The Book Trade Charity. I'd be delighted if you could help me raise money for this tremendous organization.

The Book Trade Charity offers practical, emotional and financial support to anyone who works or has worked in the Book Trade, as well as their dependants. This includes supporting individuals and families through critical illnesses, and providing urgent medical care, housing, welfare, advice and guidance.

Please donate what you can so that the charity can carry on doing what it's been doing so effectively. I'm hoping to raise around £1,500; whatever you can contribute will go a long way.
