My story

[p]I am planning to run the Edinburgh Marathon on May 26, 2019 in order to raise funds for FiSH Neighbourhood Care. I gave up running some years ago and have not run this distance, or anywhere near it, before and was inspired by my eldest son who ran the London marathon last year. I always like a challenge and thought this would be a good one. Training was going ok (albeit slowly) up to late March when I had to stop for three weeks due to injury. Now fully recovered, and with the lighter nights, it has restarted in earnest. I do not have a target time and will be very happy if/when I finish! [/p][p]FiSH was established in 1962 as one of the first neighbourhood care organisations in the country and is a registered charity that provides assistance to older and vulnerable people, including those living with dementia, located in Barnes, Mortlake and East Sheen (where I live) enabling them to live independent and dignified lives. FiSH offers friendship, support and practical help via a volunteer network. I became a trustee of FiSH in July 2018 and will become Treasurer later this year.[/p][p] All donations will be much appreciated and will make a huge difference to the vital work that FiSH does. [/p][p] Thank you! [/p][p] [/p]
