My story

[p]I've got to shift that Christmas excess somehow, and I can think of no better way than by putting myself through mile after mile of unbearable stitch and cramp pain in the name of the Toy Trust.[/p][p]Yes, on Sunday, March 1st, 2020, I - alongside an entire toy industry's worth of far better prepared and more disciplined runners - will take on the challenge of completing the London Vitality Big Half Marathon to raise money for the vital and continued work of the toy industry charity.[/p][p]No, no, please - save your adoration (I am after your hard-earned cash by way of kind donation only). For while I will highlight that you [i]did[/i] read that correctly, and that this is indeed a [b]Sunday[/b], (with a start time that would make a grown man weep) March 1st, 2020, do note that I'd only be wasting those 4 hours scrolling through Netflix anyway...[/p][p]We know [i]who[/i] the heroes are, of course: all of those who work tirelessly to support and aid disadvantaged and disabled children across the UK and abroad. It is through the work and fundraising of the toy industry's own Toy Trust that that important work can continue. [/p][p]Money raised through events such as this, and their many other initiatives, is distributed by the Toy Trust committee, who allocate grants to children's causes in need of support. For anyone thinking of donating, it's a great way to spend a fiver, a heroic use of your £10 note, and an almost saintly undertaking worthy of an MBE for anything higher.[/p][p]Thank you to anyone who can support this charity with whatever you have to spare. I know there's never a good time to shake the collection pot, but neither is there a better time to help make a difference than now. [/p]
