Running the London Marathon has been a dream of mine for a long time. I have watched the race over the years and have always been moved by the tremendous atmosphere. It’s a race that really shows London at it’s best.
At the ripe age of 40 I finally get in!
It has always been important to me to choose a charity I have a personal connection with. shuktara perfectly fits the bill.
I initially heard about David Earp, shuktara’s founder a few years ago through my passion for textiles. I bought one of his stunning bedspreads and was totally moved by the story behind it. It certainly was no ordinary quilt! I was moved to hear that David was using his talent for design to support a charity for abandoned, disabled children in India. Please take a look at their wonderful website that explains the shuktara story so much better than I can. http://shuktara.org
Without the tremendous compassion, courage and love of David and the whole shuktara team, these children wouldn’t have a future.
If any of you are able to support such a wonderful cause it will mean the absolute world to me. In return I shall update you on the training, blisters and all! xx
