My story

[p]On 26th April, 2020, over 40,000 runners will hit the streets of London to run the London Marathon and and next year I will be one of them!! This will be my first ever (and probably last ever) Marathon. [/p][p]I am running for SHELTER - the housing and homeless charity. Their objective is to defend the right for everyone in the UK to have a safe home. There are currently 320,000 people in the UK registered as homeless - this number is rising. In addition there is an estimated 130,000 children homeless - this number is rising faster. One in 103 children in the UK will be classified as homeless this Christmas. [/p][p]Training has started in earnest, I have pulled my trainers out of the cupboard, downloaded pod casts, bought pasta and am very very slowly working my way back around Tooting Common. In order to do this I will need lots of luck, a mild winter and any coins you would like to toss my way to support Shelter defend the right for EVERYONE to have a safe home. I hope you can help. Thank you. [/p]
