As one of the UK's leading children's charities, Barnardo's works directly with over 100,000 children, young people and their families every year. We run nearly 400 vital projects across the UK, including counselling for children who have been abused, fostering and adoption services, vocational training and disability inclusion groups. Every Barnardo's project is different but each believes in the potential in every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. Whatever the issue from drug misuse to disability; youth crime to mental health; sexual abuse to domestic violence; poverty to homelessness; Barnardo’s believes we can bring out the best in every child.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the great British sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising in one race. The course is a gruelling 26 miles 385 yards long, passing through the streets of London from Blackheath to the famous finish line at The Mall.

It's me again. As if one gruelling London marathon wasn't enough I've decided to do it again as a busy mum. I'm raising money for Barnardo's because of the amazing work they do to support children, young people and families. We know first hand the challenges faced by many people and how vital Barnardo's is in helping.
Im not finding it easy to fit in the training but I'm hoping the motivation of fundraising will help me over the next few cold, dark months before the big day.
Thank you as always for supporting me in any way you can.
