Between 8 February and 8 May donations in support of my London Marathon challenge will go to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal. Give before 8 May 2019 and all public donations to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal will be doubled by the UK government. Your donation will support Farm Africa projects across eastern Africa, and the matched funding you unlock from the UK government will directly fund a Farm Africa project that will give women in Kanungu in northern Uganda the opportunity to make a decent living from coffee farming.
I am running the London Marathon for Farm Africa because I'm inspired by the difference they're making.
In November 2015 my Dad traversed the Bale Mountains in Ethiopia to fundraise for Farm Africa. This 130 km hike took 4 days, all at an altitude of over 4000 metres and included summiting 4 peaks of over 4200 metres. This certainly puts my measly attempt to plod 26.2 miles around a flat course into perspective. However, if you do think this challenge (or more importantly, charity) is worth supporting it would be massively appreciated.
