raised of £300 target by 24 supporters

    Weʼve raised £327 to refurbish and update the much used Wilsden Village Hall by running the Leicester Marathon on 23 October!

    Funded on Friday, 28th October 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    By co-incidence as I am approaching my 40th birthday so is the much used and relied upon Wilsden Village Hall (my local village hall). The Village Hall is a central hub for the Wilsden Community and is relied on by many members of the Community of all ages for social contact and other services. The Village Hall hosts many groups including playgroup, youth club, dance and music sessions, Beavers, Brownies, Scouts, luncheon club, café life, preschool, after school club and last but most certainly not least the community library.

    The Village Hall is sadly very much showing its age and is much in need of refurbishment so that it can continue to support the needs of the village community.

    I make no comment about my appearance as I approach 40, but I may be showing my age in having a small midlife crisis and thinking this is the best time to run my first marathon....

    SO.. I am running the Leicester Marathon on 23 October 2016 to raise money to refurbish this much relied upon part of my local community. Any donation would be very much appreciated and will keep me going over the long 26.2 miles of the course and will help the Village Hall keep going for many more years to come.

    Thank you!

      The race was today and I got round in one piece - in a time of 4hrs 32. Thank you all so much for donating it really did help me to keep going. The best bit was the last mile up hill - thanks to the hilly training round Wilsden!! The smile is because the family were running with me and the end was in sight - it mist certainly wasn't there 10 minutes earlier -ouch!!!

      Less than a week to go until the Marathon and feeling nervous. Last long training run done and a week of a few short runs underway (thank goodness). Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far, I really appreciate the support and it really will help me to keep running (well moving)! Here is a photo of Wilsden Village Hall, where all of the money I raise will be going.
