Story

I am very honoured to have been selected as a member the Somerset Scout Contingent for the World Scout Jamboree in America 2019. Although a real privilege, it is going to cost me £3,995 to go, (including all the training camps and activities before hand). I am hoping to do a number of fundraising events and work hard to raise funds myself, but I also need your help to make this dream come true.

Part of the fundraising challenge will be to run a West Coker Marathon in May 2018. I want to do something that will be a challenge and worthy of people making a donation. I have designed a 2 miles course that I intend running/walking 13 times throughout the day. Training has already started.

Thank you in advance for any support or assistance that you can provide in making this happen.

    Photos and updates from this week. Tuesday morning and it should have been a long 16 mile session but I was struggling. My lovely mum trying to encourage me out of bed with a Facebook message to all that she knows. However I did get up and do at least 6 miles up to Cardiff shopping centre and back to Cardiff Bay! it is getting harder but only a week to go now
