raised of £500 target by 64 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,400 to go towards the fund for PC Keith Palmer (set up by Met Police Federation) by running the London Marathon.

    United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 6th May 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Around the day PC Keith Palmer lost his life, I was contemplating pulling out of the London Marathon due to injury for the 2nd year running having missed pretty much all the training.

    I knew Keith Palmer as we served in the Royal Artillery together and he was a good friend at that time in my life, we sadly lost contact over the years.

    Rather than drop out of the Marathon, I will somehow get around the course and help raise money towards the PC Keith Palmer Fund set up by the Metropolitan Police Federation which will go towards helping his family in the future.

    Experiencing some pain during my 26.2 miles is nothing compared to what his family are going through and rather than drop out, I want to show the same commitment Keith Palmer showed in his role in 100 Field Regiment, The Metropolitan Police and defending Democracy and the Members of Parliament on that sad day on 22nd March 2017.

    I only have 2 and a half weeks to not only get marathon fit but also to fund raise, so please help support this cause. If you cannot donate, please share my Facebook page to help get the message out there.

    Thank you,

      Just wanted to thank everyone for their support so far, for not only my marathon, but more importantly, for the Keith Palmer fund. I have tried to thank you individually and also random people that I do not know but thank you once again. There has also been 2 Anonymous donations who I cannot say thank you to personally so hopefully you see this - thank you! Not good on the training front - I am only reaching 3 miles without pain kicking in.....11 days to go though! Please carry on supporting me and thank you once again. Mark
