Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Child poverty is on the increase and yet those very kids need our support more than ever. The Children's Society provides that support but needs cash to do it! If you donate to my 10K run, the charity will get the money and spend it on helping those children most at risk.

If you want to support me with my run and want to donate, remember:

£10 could buy a couple of hot meals a month for a neglected child when a support worker meets them.

£20 could buy a top-up phone card for a young runaway so they can quickly contact a support worker when they are in danger.

£30 could fund a mediation session in a family breakdown situation.

£40+ can significantly help any of our projects supporting young carers, children at risk of sexual exploitation or neglect.

Your support will spur me on to run a great race!

Before you go, have a quick look at some of the recent work The Children's Society has done in highlighting issues around free school meals:

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 Children's Society 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.

So please dig deep and donate now.

After a rainy weekend and no outdoor running I popped on the "30 Day Shred" DVD - 20 minutes of non-stop exercise in front of the telly. Kids thought it was hilarious - my aching calves are feeling smug though!

I went shoe shopping today - no Kurt Geigers but a pair of special running shoes - apparantly my black Woolworth plimsoles are not up to it! Great girl at Running Needs in Chertsey gave me all the help and confidence I need!
