Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

For years I've watched the London Marathon on TV and been inspired and moved by the thousands of people who've got fit enough to run a marathon for a charity they believe in. So putting aside painful memories of finishing among the stitch-prone stragglers during school athletics, I've entered Nottingham's Robin Hood Marathon on 12th September.

I'm raising funds for Advantage Africa's work with people living in poverty who also lack opportunies for education and employment because they're disabled or affected by HIV. For more of my story and how our work changes lives, click on the video link on the left of this page. Please give generously to make a difference to children like those shown in this one minute film.

I promise to do my best to complete the full 26.2 miles, and as Advantage Africa's Director, I'll make sure your support is used properly and has a real impact.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure and they won't send you unwanted emails. Your donation will go directly to Advantage Africa together with any eligible Gift Aid. It's an efficient way to donate that helps me raise more and reduces administration for Advantage Africa. Thank you so much for your support.
