Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Al & I have decided to raise money for the RAFBF and the St Clement Danes 1941 Appeal. Both are charities with a great vision to support the RAF Family.

The 3-pillared St Clement Danes 1941 Appeal seeks to raise funds to restore and upgrade the RAF's Central Church for future generations. More info can be found here : Donate - St Clement Danes Church (

Unfortunately, fundraising pages do not allow support to two charities so we have to pick one and enclose a link to the other. We hope you will see fit to split your donation to each charity so that they can both benefit.

The Lap is a 47 mile Ultra Marathon around Lake Windermere. It takes place on mostly ungroomed trails and has 2,500m of ascent. The current race records are 8:08:09 for females and 6:59:28 for males. Fortunately, there are 24hrs to complete the route and I imagine we will be making use of every one of those hours. 

The Lap is Al's idea of a fun weekend. I'm not so sure... Hopefully, you will give generously and feel just a little bit sorry for me. My legs, after all, are significantly shorter than Al's so I'll be doing lots more steps than him.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
