My story

[p]Hi. Thanks for clicking through. I hope you've arrived here because you enjoy reading the [i]twickerati[/i] blog or because you follow @twickerati on Twitter or Facebook. If you like what you read (or at least find it vaguely useful) then I hope you'll make a donation to [b]SPEAR[/b], the Twickenham based charity doing excellent work helping homeless people in south west London.[/p][p][b]What?[/b][/p][p]Apart from doing things like having a day job, a family and updating [i]twickerati [/i]with Twickenham related news, I also do a bit of running. A long held running goal of mine has been to take on the London Marathon. This April I finally have the chance to do that and help a fantastic and vital local charity at the same time. [/p][p][b]Who?[/b][/p][p]I am raising funds for SPEAR, a charity based in Twickenham. Its mission is to enable homeless people in south and west London to find secure accommodation and work towards a positive future. As well as brokering accommodation, SPEAR also provides support for its clients to address mental health, addiction and relationship difficulties and build the skills necessary to live independently.[/p][p]In 2017 SPEAR marked its 30th Anniversary. It's an impressive achievement but also a necessary one. The issue of homelessness continues to affect many vulnerable people and SPEAR's services are as relevant and important today as when the charity was founded back in 1987.[/p][p]So, if you enjoy reading [i]twickerati [/i]whether on the blog, Twitter or Facebook then I'd be hugely grateful if you could support me in my marathon effort and make a donation to SPEAR to help it continue its work. Any donation, large or small, would mean a lot to me but it will mean so much more to those who need it most. Thank you very much.
