Story

Hello,

Insanity has once again ensued and I am running the London Marathon for the second time,  anyone who can remember quite how much pain I was in following the first time will appreciate how nuts this is.

I can't think of anyone better than InterAct Reading Service to run this marathon for.  I cannot undersell the importance of the work they do and how much they help patients recovering from a stroke.  They give stroke patients the stimulation and interaction they need to not only help them get better, but to make them feel like human beings: 

"Having a stroke is so lonely. It is such a shock, you need someone to keep your spirits up. Thank God for you and for the ministry of your stories. They keep me focused and keep my feet on the right path" National Hospital

Just £30 pays for one of these incredible sessions.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: InterAct Reading Service gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please sponsor me now!
