My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. [/p][p]I decided to take up the challenge of running the 2018 London Marathon because I reach a milestone birthday four days after the race. As a teacher at St Ignatius College, a Jesuit school, I am raising money for Jesuit Missions who helps marginalised people in countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. In the past few years, marathon funds have helped refugees caught up in the fighting in the Middle East, including providing medical assistance in Syria and counselling for families in South Sudan. [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p] I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations, no matter how large or small, as it all makes a difference to those in most need.[/p][p]John[/p]
