Dearest friends & family,

All winter I’ve been plagued with injuries and self-doubt that I could run THE London Marathon. But last weekend I had a breakthrough- running 27 km in a snowstorm didn’t kill me (much as I thought it would!).  Plodding the streets of London amidst the snow, wind, and cold and arriving home in one (albeit half frozen) piece made me realise that I can actually do this damn marathon! However…I’ve still got the hardest month ahead of me.  

This is where you all come in. I desperately need a cheer squad (get your pom poms at the ready!) to get me through my last month of marathon training and to get me to the start line on April 22nd.

I’m running in support of Artsadmin, an incredible arts charity that I’ve had the privilege to work with for over a decade. Artsadmin supports, nurtures and produces bold contemporary performance artworks that are seen by around 250,000 people each year and by many more online. They tour artists’ projects in the UK and internationally, run free advisory sessions for over 450 artists each year, provide artists’ bursaries, deliver amazing education programmes and save the planet through their groundbreaking art and environment 2 Degrees Festival. 

I’d like to raise £1,000 to specifically support their Artist Development team and all the fantastic education projects and assistance they provide for artists at every stage of their careers.  Every pound I raise will be match funded by Arts Council England's Catalyst Evolve scheme and with Gift Aid. £1 donated = £2.25!

It would be fantastic if you could help get me through the next month and raise some cash for this brilliant charity.  

Many thanks, you lovely people.

Disappointed in this day &age at no options for performance related donations. We were hoping to inflict maximum pain for cash (whole point of these things, right?). We guess 26 miles should be painful enough, though. Have fun! :-)
