My story

[p]17th May 2020:[/p][p]Paul's just completed another 10K training run. He's just sent us some videos including a short clip of him running with his brilliant dog, Vince, as pacemaker.[/p][p]Watch the videos and read more about Paul's run: [url=https://drcbeds.org.uk/uncategorized/pauls-running-10k-to-raise-funds-for-our-charity/]https://drcbeds.org.uk/uncategorized/pauls-running-10k-to-raise-funds-for-our-charity/[/url][/p][p]15th May 2020:[/p][p]Here is an update on Paul’s progress to 10K and £1500 for our charity[/p][p]Paul told us yesterday: ‘I ran 7k this morning at 6:30am (but my wife ran 8.5k at same time!) and aiming for another 10k(ish) run over the weekend.[/p][p]I haven’t had a beer since last weekend but can’t promise not to at the weekend.[/p][p]As Boris has told me personally, that I can now run in the countryside (and for as far as I want and for as long as I want), then to the fields it will be on the 25th May.[/p][p]One of my friends who works for a brewery has promised me a delivery of beer if I can get under an hour – unfortunately for me his beer is safe!”[/p][p]Donations are coming in on this page and via text message direct to our charity.[/p][p]To donate £5 by mobile phone text: Simply text DRCBEDS to 70085.[/p][p]Paul’s raising money in support of our vital services during the coronavirus crisis, for disabled people and carers in Bedfordshire and Luton.[/p][p]Read more about Paul's run and how you can support him raising funds for our charity: [url=https://drcbeds.org.uk/uncategorized/pauls-running-10k-to-raise-funds-for-our-charity/][b]https://drcbeds.org.uk/uncategorized/pauls-running-10k-to-raise-funds-for-our-charity/[/b][/url][/p][p]-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/p][p][b]About Paul's 10K run...[/b][/p][p]Paul said "I'm running 10K to raise funds for our charity[/p][p]Please send your donations in support of The Disability Resource Centre, in Dunstable.[/p][p]A little about how I got here...[/p][p]I was geared up mentally to do the Vitality London 10K which was obviously cancelled due to the current situation and so instead I’m running on my own, live on Facebook. [/p][p]On the 25th May, come rain (or snow!) I’m running 10K and hoping people will sponsor me to support our charity in Dunstable.[/p][p]Why did I decide to do this? Well, my wife is very healthy and I’m trying to lose some weight (1 stone so far) and hadn’t run for 30 odd years, so I thought it’s about time to get serious with my health. [/p][p]It took me a while to actually get my head around attempting this and believe me, for a start it hurt every time I went running. Although I still find it challenging I am now pretty confident and starting to enjoy a run, especially now I can run for longer and enjoy the lovely countryside.[/p][p]I’m only averaging around 7 minutes per kilometre so 10K will take me 70 to 80 minutes of running. [/p][p]I hope to do a live broadcast at the beginning, at the midpoint, and at the end.”[/p][p]--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/p][p]"The Disability Resource Centre will be [url=https://www.facebook.com/TheDisabilityResourceCentre/]posting about my progress on their Facebook page[/url] in the days up to the event. You’ll be able to track my progress on the Facebook page, on day too.[/p][p]So please support me to raise vital funds for The Disability Resource Centre.[/p][p]During the coronavirus crisis the charity has been helping many more people with vital help and support. [/p][p]The Disability Resource Centre is helping local people find support for shopping, medications, befriending services, claiming PIP benefits and many more…[/p][p]Read how they've helped vulnerable people during the coronavirus crisis this week:[/p][p]– Mrs S hasn’t left her home in 3 months, she’s barely seen the postman. We were able to get her prescriptions delivered as well as find her details for local shops to deliver some essentials.[/p][p]– Mr G had his tri-walker stolen while he was in hospital, we have used the ‘Chat and no contact collect service’ to talk to him, find a suitable replacement and get a walker to him so he can get around safely.[/p][p]– Mr K was medically retired and wanted to apply for PIP, so we booked a telephone consultation with one of our expert disability benefits advisors. He has since been able to apply for PIP with all the information and advice he needed to be successful.[/p][p]– Mr and Mrs L are shielding and they have no family locally. They needed some essentials and wanted someone to talk to. We were able to refer them to a local service to have a befriender call them, as well as deliver them some essential shopping.[/p][p]You can read more about the centre on their website: [url=https://drcbeds.org.uk/]https://drcbeds.org.uk/[/url][/p][p]I really appreciate your support,[/p][p]Paul Robson."[/p]
