Story

I am excited to be running the 2018 Virgin London Marathon, after a very generous philanthropist and dedicated supporter of Helen and Douglas House bid £2500 in our silent auction to secure my place, during our Charity Dinner at Blenheim Palace.

This is a huge challenge for me, as the furthest that I have ever run to date is 15 miles. I will, as always, draw inspiration from the children and young people that we serve as I struggle my way through the training, over the next 11 months.  

Please help us to make the most of this generously offered opportunity and of my sweat and tears!
