Story

18 April 2011

Did it !!! Really pleased with getting a time under 4 hours. It was very hot and my knees had a bad patch but I came through well enough to put in a fast mile or so at the end. What a day, great support from the crowds, from the RNLI, from my lovely wife and from you who sponsored me. Thank you.

My Story

I will be running in the Virgin London Marathon and raising money for the Lifeboats. It's a great charity that is mostly manned by volunteers. They provide a permanent lifesaving service around the coast and offshore with no government funding. My passion for offshore sailing and my work teaching potential Yachtmasters gives me a connection to the work of the RNLI and I have been a member for over 20 years. Please help me help them and give what you can.

 

Donations are being dealt by JustGiving as they are 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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed if eligible. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

 

So please dig deep and donate now.

 

And don't forget to support me on April 17th!
