My story

[p]I am retiring from my work in the NHS in April and want to get back to doing more voluntary and charity work. I have been a supporter of the Build It charity for some years and wanted see the work that they do in Zambia and raise funds at the same time. I will be running the Edinburgh Marathon in May as a fundraiser and doing the cycling challenge as my contribution to the charity. Please support Build It through a donation for my running and cycling challenges [/p][p]Can I also thank Angela and Mark, Peter, Tony and Linda, Jill and Simon for donating to the main charity page and adding an extra £260 (plus £65 gift aid) to my total.[/p]

Well done John, the oldest too. Now you know how I feel when struggling with the Wobblers. Next time we do Llanymynech both ways into a headwind you can sit at the front. Amazing what you guys have raised. Sounds such a worthwhile and effective project.
