Fundraising for Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity
raised of £250 target
Event: Royal Parks Half Marathon 2023, on 8 October 2023
We support people with dyslexia to succeed on their own terms.


I will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon on the 8th of October 2023. This will be my half marathon comeback after having run my first 2 years ago, but since then having had an operation and 3 ankle sprains. This time round I wanted to raise some money for a worthy cause, so please donate if you can. I am in the fortunate situation where my employer Brit Insurance will donate £2 for every £1 I raise, so any small donations will go a long way. The Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity leads the way in providing specialist support to children, young people and adults with dyslexia and other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs). Their mission is to help people: 1. Believe in themselves 2. Achieve their goals and 3. Succeed on their own terms. There is no government funding for dyslexia, despite its lifelong impact. Fundraising is vital to ensure in-depth assessment and tuition is available to anyone with dyslexia, including lower income families and schools in disadvantaged areas. Thank you, Alice
