On Sunday 25th April I’m running in the London Marathon for the second time. Last year I ran it in 4hrs 47 minutes and I’m hoping to beat that time by some distance. We shall see. (if you’re interested I use another blog as a way of keeping track of my training)
Anyway 26.2 miles is a long way to run just for the fun of it, when I can do that and raise money for an excellent cause at the same time. I’ve left it late deliberately because I just want you to make a decision now to give £5 (or more) away to help vulnerable children and the vulnerable aged in east Ukraine, do something about it while before further distractions set in. The charity is called Breadtrust and they’ll ensure the money is put to excellent use through their partner churches in Ukraine.
You can give online safely and easily here. Last year readers of this blog were very generous in your support which was hugely encouraging and it would be wonderful if you felt able to do the same again. If you’re a taxpayer please make sure you tick the Gift Aid box as it’s extra money to the charity at no cost to you.
Thank you so much. On the day I’ll try and remember to update the twitter feed and if you’re very keen you can find out how slow I’m going by using the runner tracker. My race number is XXXX
