My story

[p]Hello! [/p][p]I'm running the London Marathon on April 28th to raise cash for Shelter. [/p][p]I feel furious about the massive rise in homelessness in the UK. More than 300,000 people in our country - equivalent to one in every 200 - are officially recorded as homeless or living in inadequate homes. So I thought I'd do something about it.[/p][p]Apart from donating some cash on a monthly basis, running is something I can also do. So, tackling the London Marathon felt like the best way to help raise a significant sum of wonga for Shelter.[/p][p]Last year over 5 million people turned to Shelter for advice. For every £1 you donate now, 79p goes towards helping people struggling with inadequate housing and homelessness.[/p][p]The training and the run's going to be tough as I ain't no spring chicken. But your support could get me through.[/p][p]Donate £10 +, and I'll send you my DJ set for my fundraising club night 'Maneater' - a '00s trash club night in March at Tiger in Homerton.[/p][p]Donate £20 +, and you can dedicate a song that I'll play while I run the London Marathon on 28th April. [/p][p]Or come to my fundraising club night:[/p][p]MANEATER - 00s trash club[/p][p]Sat 30 March, 8pm - 2am[/p][p]at The Tiger, 245 Wick Rd, London E9 5DG. [/p][p]Tubes: Hackney Wick, Homerton[/p][p]supporting homelessness charity Shelter[/p][p]DJs playing all 00s all night[/p][p]Floor 1 - 00s hits[/p][p]Floor 0 - 00s underground[/p][p]tickets: £6 advance (limited) or £8 on night[/p][p]all ticket sales go to Shelter[/p][p][br][/p][p]www.wegottickets.com/event/461877[/p]
