Thanks for taking the time to visit my just giving page

Hello everyone, I promiced I wouldn’t do another marathon after suffering so much last year but here I go again! Another London Marathon is upon us and I have got a place so I thought I’d run for charity – cant waste it!  This time preparation really has been an issue especially after rupturing both calves at last years event – I have also been very short of time what with moving house, a new job in Lincoln and time away in a winter environment (training in the snow is a challenge!).  So this gives you all another chance to enjoy a PTI and now SWO suffering doing a physical event for a change – and I suspect the 26th Apr will be a very tough day out! I am raising funds and awareness for the ‘Support our Soldiers’ (SOS) a charity who I have seen do tremendous work providing assistance dogs for wounded veterans and when I was on tour improving the moral of Military people serving on Operations by providing tastes of home in comfy boxes.  They are not limited to this kind of work and involve
themselves in the more difficult aspects of service life including providing essentials to those hurt while on operations or assisting families adjusting to life with an injured loved one.  They also raise funds to support Regional Rehabilitation Units that continue the outstanding work started at Headley Court rehabilitating injured colleagues.  This year we are hoping to once again raise £20k which will fund an assistance dog for an injured veteran.

So what am I going to do to earn your cash????  The 26th April is London Marathon Day and for me – torture day!  So what do you think?  Has to worth a few quid for a good cause – right?  Hopefully your agreeing and rushing for your credit card – thanks! Not got the time?  Please use your phone and text.  Whatever you can give would be very welcome.

Please remember to leave a message with your donations. Make them funny, personal, inspirational, supportive or even full of banter but do make one as I’ll read them to inspire me through the training and of course the brutal day pounding the streets of London!!!

Not got much time then text GDLM69 £5 to 70070 - donation done!
