Story

This is really the final step, (well maybe not the final step....) in a journey that began back in 2010 when I first learnt to run. Then in 2012 I entered my first charity race, a  5k fun run on Southampton common that raised £250 for Dr Hadwen Trust, a charity raising money for non animal medical research. The rest as they say is history.............

Having now ran a 10K and 3 Half Marathons, I am finally ready for the Big One ! So this is it! My first Marathon! It will be so special for me to stand on the start line, and hopefully to claim my medal at the end.

I am running for Hart Wildlife because it is a privilege to be a small part of the wonderful work they do.  I volunteer there once a week.They look after Hedgehogs, pigeons, owls, foxes, buzzards, swallows, anything furred or feathered that needs their help! They are a small charity that runs with very few paid staff. They need money for food and medicine for all the lovely creatures they seek to save and then release to live the life they are meant to live in the wild. Please support them in all the wonderful work they do by contributing to my sponsorship fund.

I am actually sharing the money raised between Hart Wildlife and Orangutan UK who work to rescue and protect Orangutans in Borneo because they are threatened because humans cut down their habitat for Palm oil plantations.I wish we could learn that the whole planet is not ours to use and abuse as we wish. We  should share it more carefully with all of the worlds other creatures whether they are Orangutans in Borneo or Hedgehogs in Hampshire!

I really appreciate your support.
