So why am I running the London Marathon?
I've never wanted to run a marathon, but if you know my boyfriend, Paul, you will know that he is crazy about running. One day he thought it would be a great idea to enter us both into the London Marathon...but guess who got in, ME not him!!!
So to help motivate me in my training I would love to raise some money for our wonderful hospital charity, Over and Above. The new appeal is for a Cancer and Wellbeing Centre on the grounds of North Devon District Hospital, where I work.
This will be a dedicated centre offering a wide range of support services to anyone affected by cancer and other illnesses, all within a comfortable and welcoming environment. This centre is a much needed facility. One of the benefits of the centre will be a relative's accommodation wing, allowing loved ones to be close by during treatment.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity.
