My story

[p]Since 2006 I have tried and failed to get into the London Marathon through the ballot. This year my husband Cliff got a place through the club we run with, Stubbington Green Runners and he decided that I should join him. Much to my surprise one of my Christmas presents was a charity place for the London Marathon largely funded by Cliff selling a saxophone. We still have a little way to go so any contributions will be very gratefully received. Meanwhile training is going well and we are now just 8 weeks from the event. On the day it won't be fast, it won't be pretty, but it will be fantastic[/p][p][br][/p][p][url=https://www.1851trust.org.uk/][img]https://www.1851trust.org.uk/wp-content/themes/1851trust/images/NEW1851.gif[/img][/url][/p][p]The 1851 Trust is a dynamic and innovative education charity committed to inspiring young people to become innovators of the future.[/p][p]Inspired by Sir Ben Ainslie’s challenge for sailing’s America’s Cup and using materials from Lloyd’s Register Foundation, young people have a unique opportunity to take part in a range of hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities.[/p][p]As well as these fun, educational activities, the young people all love the opportunity to put their learning into practice sailing dinghies. For most, this is their first experience out on the water![/p]
