My story

[p]Wow! Thanks for coming to look at my London Marathon sponsorship page. [/p][p]I'm guessing this means you are thinking of supporting me. It would be fantastic if you do because the money we raise will help the Jesuit Refugee Service in Uganda to provide education to some of the thousands who have fled the catastrophic situation in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Uganda hosts more refugees than any other African nation and desperately needs international support to maintain its generous policy towards asylum seekers. [/p][p][b]NEWSFLASH: My running number is 40998 if you want to track my progress on the day[/b][/p][p]Please help me to raise £2500 I have promised towards this great cause.[/p][p]This is my first ever attempt at a marathon and in fact my first ever attempt at running (apart from for a bus obvs). I even bought some proper expensive plimsoles. [/p][p]We are in power down mode now so no more long runs until the big one - what a relief! My last long run was on Easter Sunday and for the first time I had a running partner in my son Rupert who is also raising funds fro JM in the 2018 marathon. We were on holiday in Pembrokeshire where there are no flat routes so we chose 18 miles of the coastal path from Dale to Little Haven. [url=https://www.jesuit.org.uk/easter-sunday-longest-run]You can read the full story here[/url][/p][p]There is a picture of me and Rupert below, and one of me and colleague Richard having just completed the Surrey Half in March, plus some on Wimbledon Common where I met up with a Jesuit and a Womble for some training back in February. So you can see I really am really running![/p][p]You can sponsor me online here: 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]
