My story

[p][i]Unfortunately a back injury prevented me from running in the 2018 marathon as originally planned. I raised £1,909.57 from 34 incredible sponsors last year, which has been deferred by BTBS to add to my donations for this year. [/i][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]In April (if everything goes according to plan!) I am running the 2019 London Marathon for BTBS, a great charity close to my heart. Growing up with a publisher for a dad and an author for a mum, the book trade has always been a big part of my existence. [/b] [/p][p][b]This will be my first marathon, following in the steps of my dad, brother and sister-in-law, who have run seven marathons between them. I will be balancing running with studies for my history degree at Cambridge University.[/b][/p][p][b]If you can, please donate to this excellent cause. It will help to inspire me when primary sources on the Henrician Reformation just ain't enough to get a girl up and out on a freezing Feb morning. [/b] [/p][p][b]Lots of love. xxx[/b][/p][p][i]The Book Trade Charity (BTBS), established 1837, is the trade’s own welfare charity, offering help to anyone who has worked in the trade (employed, self-employed or freelance) in a range of roles across publishing, distribution and bookselling and who has a problem, whether personal, financial or health related. The Charity offers direct financial assistance to individuals in need through its Grants programme, giving over one hundred and sixty thousand pounds in 2016 and subsidised housing for some forty people at Kings Langley in Hertfordshire and thirty people at Whetstone in London. We have recently launched new initiatives to support young people entering the trade and undertaking internships. BTBS helps around 200 people a year, in circumstances which include disability, long-term illness, redundancy, debt including rent arrears, poverty, carer situations.[/i][/p]
