My page:

Many thanks for taking the time to visit my page. The London Marathon is this weekend. My top is cleaned and ironed, and the name printed on the front. Keep an eye out on BBC One on Sunday to see if you can spot me. 12 weeks of hard training are nearly at an end. I've run in snow, rain, hail and sun and covered many many miles to reach the start line.

£1 = 14 bowls of Porridge.

African Children's Fund is a charity working to break down the barriers preventing African children leading happy and fulfilled lives.
Africa's children need an education if Africa is to prosper. These children yearn to learn. We can help fulfil that yearning - lifting them & their communities out of poverty. The problems can be awful. The solutions are not rocket science. With your help and the children's courage, education, opportunities and hope for the future can be achieved.

For each £1 donated, 14 bowls of porridge can be provided to those in need. For each £5, a girl can have access to all that she needs to have a safe and valuable education.

I will also be taking part in the Berlin Marathon in September 2017.

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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
