Story

My beloved other half was involved in a near fatal motorcycle accident in March 2009 and without the help of London's Air Ambulance he would not have survived and my world would have fallen apart.
 
It costs £5000 a day to keep the helicopter flying and I wanted to make sure we repaid the debt we owed them by raising that figure. Along with the help of family and friends we've smashed this target but as it's something I hold so dear I've continued to keep fund raising.
 
The latest challenge is to run not just any marathon but the London Marathon, so if you have a spare bit of cash please donate, you just never know when you might need them and without charitable donations the helicopter won't keep flying.
 
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
 
Love
 
Al (and Mark)
