My story

[p]For those that know me i'm a slightly overweight, not overly active 25 year old that enjoys good food and the pub. I therefore thought it'd be a great idea to give everyone a laugh and sign up to run the London Marathon on behalf of the [url=https://www.1851trust.org.uk]1851 Trust[/url]! [/p][p]The 1851 Trust is a charity created on the back of the British entry into the America's Cup. It provides an impressive range of exciting activities to inspire young people through the sport of sailing whilst also recognising the diversity of skills and interests and recognising the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects to their futures. [/p][p]Many will know that sailing is a sport close to my heart. It's provided me more opportunities than one can imagine and allowed me to become involved with so many different projects. Having seen first hand through the Atlantic Cup's Kids Program the fun students have whilst talking and engaging with the race, I wanted to do my bit to see education through sailing continue to develop. This makes the 1851 Trust the perfect charity to be running for! [/p][p]I'll keep this page updated and will post a few bits and bobs to my Facebook page. For now though please donate should you wish and if you see a blob running around the Cotswolds then rest assured it's only me. [/p][p]Cheers,[/p][p]S [/p]
