Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

You'll be pleased to hear I completed the Great North Run on Sunday, 16th September, in a not-too-shabby time of 2.38.20. It's basically what I was aiming for so I'm delighted.

I'm doubly glad that I've also smashed my fundraising target, and I'm grateful to all of you who donated so kindly.

I ended the day in South Tyneside General Hospital after I'd over-exerted myself and failed to take enough water on during the run. Proof, if there needs to be any, that I gave it my all for you lot and for Centrepoint.

If you still feel inclined, you can still donate today - this page will remain open until December 15th, the more the merrier.

Meanwhile, if you're curious about Centrepoint and the work they do - visit them at http://www.centrepoint.org.uk/.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thanks again for donating, you're all stars.

Delighted to say that I've smashed my £300 target and have raised somewhere around £440 for Centrepoint UK - Thanks to everyone for donating, it's really appreciated.

Broken the £300 barrier last week, over the moon. But there's a fortnight to go so still plenty of time to donate if you haven't done so.

Fundraising is going well, but still need a decent wedge to get me over the £300 line. Thanks to all who have donated so far.

Thanks to everyone at work who have pledged a total of £100 - that's a third of my total raised in an afternoon. Thanks!

If you were to give me a piggy-back along the route, at £1.52 per mile it would still be cheaper than the bus. Good luck matey!
