Story

Total of sponsorship, events, and pledges offline currently amount to over £40,000

I have been a public servant all my working life.On March 21st 2020( we are now delayed awaiting Covid19 restrictions to be lifted) I will set of on an epic challenge of 120 marathons in 120 days with my dog Tilly, she is a 3 year old Poochon breed who loves to walk. I intend to continue serving the public by raising £500,000 for a number of local and national charities. I will do this by completing 120 marathons in 120 days over a number of countries between the dates of 21/03/2020 – 18/07/2020. The Marathons will be made up of both organised and our own events and will cover 26.5 miles per day for 120 days.

The charities that I have chosen to support to varying degrees have all had an impact in both my personal and professional life. I have chosen charities both national and local to Yorkshire. I have recently lost parents, family and friends through Cancer and heart failure. My youngest daughter was born with a rare condition that she has learned to deal with but with a strong will, determination and support from hospitals and support charities she has overcome most difficulties associated with the condition. I have seen the empowerment that sport gives kids and young adults who have disabilities to take part in sport.
I have had the benefit of seeing the Yorkshire Air Ambulance attending remote accidents and providing lifesaving care to people who otherwise die from injuries. The Harrogate homeless project providing day to day services for those finding themselves unfortunate to be without food accommodation and hope. Finally you may be unaware of the great opportunities that amateur theatre groups and theatres provide to young and old people alike. Theatres are much more than buildings with history; they are the backbone of many small communities providing a lifeline as a community hub. Theatre groups themselves who I have worked with over the past 20 years bring communities together and allow access and opportunities for thousands of people which they would not necessary had otherwise.
