My story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Makomborero.&nbsp; 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p> <p><strong>About me!</strong></p> <p>I have been running for a few years and always swore I'd never run a marathon.&nbsp; In a moment of madness, I agreed to bite the bullet and enter the London Marathon.&nbsp; My weeks now consist of early nights and rationed supplies of wine - along with at least 30 miles of running!</p> <p><strong>About Makomborero</strong></p> <p>Makomborero is a UK based Charity that helps to relieve poverty through education in Zimbabwe. Makomborero means "blessings" in the local Zimbabwean language, Shona.</p> <p><span>They run<span id="dtx-highlighting-item"> a </span>bo<span id="dtx-highlighting-item">a</span>rding school with </span><a href="http://www.makomborero.info/2011_students.html"><span>15<span id="dtx-highlighting-item"> A</span>-level students</span></a><span>.
