Story

"I'll put my name in for the ballot but I'll never get in"

It's what I said before I found myself with a place in the London Marathon in 2013 and it is what I said again before I found myself with a place in the Berlin Marathon for September 2014. Next week I take on my second marathon challenge and do my bit to raise as much money as I can for a very special charity.

Kenya continues to suffer political, economic and many other challenges. Many international visitors have travelled through Kenya and hand delivered their donations but due to the current troubles the number of travellers has reduced. The charity now needs to pay postage and import duties for the basics many take for granted such as toilet roll, toothbrushes, books and pens. My family has been helping the UK nationals who run the home for many years and I was fortunate to meet some of the people involved and was amazed by their enthusiasm and their genuine commitment to give these children the best possible opportunities.

If you are able to make even a small donation I am very grateful.
