We help people with Down’s Syndrome to reach their fullest potential


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I ran the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday 27th May to raise money for Down's Syndrome Scotland. This year DSS celebrates 30 years of working to improve the quality of life for everyone with Down's syndrome and their families. I'd never run a marathon before, I can only assume it was the result of a mid-life crisis on turning 50! The training was a slog, running on freezing cold rainy dark winter nights, but I was determined to make it. 

 My 8 year old daughter Matilda has Down's syndrome and is an inspiration to the family and everyone who meets her. DSS has been an invaluable source of support and information, any donation would be greatly appreciated. 

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
