My story

[p]2018 is a 'landmark birthday' year for me so I thought what better way to mark it than set myself the challenge of running the London marathon! Whilst I run a lot and have done halves in the past, I'm yet to manage a whole one (gulp) so very much a big step (or rather, lots and lots of little ones). At the same time, I am aiming to raise money for the children's health research charity, Sparks. Sparks is the partner research arm of Great Ormond Street Hospital and raises money to fund pioneering child health research across the UK, helping to find new treatments and cures for children and families who desperately need them. Having seen first-hand the fantastic work of Great Ormond Street for the children of family and friends I set a target to raise over £2,000 for Sparks. Thanks to everyone’s generosity I’ve now exceeded this but I want to raise as much as possible and every donation will make a huge difference to this charity.[/p][p]I appreciate you all have lots of requests for sponsorships and donations but if you are able to donate, any amount would be gratefully received. Even the smallest donation will make a huge difference to this charity. And also a huge difference to helping me get around the course![/p][p]Thank you in advance and if any of you are out and about watching the marathon, please a) cheer loudly and b) feel free to join me for a drink afterwards as myself and some other runners have hired an area in the Buckingham Arms (https://www.buckinghamarms.com/) near the finish for post-run drinks whilst wearing foil capes.[/p][p] [/p]
