My story

[p]As many of you will know, my friend Doug passed away in 2017 unexpectedly. He was the fittest person I knew, always out and about, helping others with their sporting ventures and always with a smile on his face. I have been struggling to think of a way to show my appreciation for everything he did for me, and I thought there was no better way than to get fit and to raise some money for a fantastic charity in the process. But I didn't want to just do a token event, I wanted to do something that would really push me, the way he always approached things. So, either bravely or stupidly (I know he's laughing at me right now) I entered not one, but THREE major sporting events for 2020:The London Marathon, Ride London (100 miles) and Swim Serpentine. [/p][p]Mad?...yes. Achievable?...Doug would say yes, so yes from me too. I would really appreciate any support you could give, big or small, it will all make a difference. I will bombard your news feeds with my beetroot face and updates on my progress over the coming months and will be running some fundraising events between now and April including a Quiz night with some fantastic prizes so watch this space.[/p][p]My chosen Charity is Livability, a disability charity that connects people with their communities. Livability tackles social isolation and the barriers that can cause this in the lives of disabled and vulnerable people.[/p][p]Through a wide range of disability, education, training and community services, they promote inclusion and wellbeing for all. Their 2000-strong, enabling team of staff and volunteers across the UK deliver:[/p][p]· Care homes and residential support centers.[/p][p]· A school and a further education college for disabled students.[/p][p]· Independent and supported living programmes for disabled people.[/p][p]· Rehabilitation centers for brain and spinal injury.[/p][p]· Church training in community engagement and disability awareness.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Livability. 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.[/p]
