Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I'm running the London Marathon.   And, until today, Saturday 25th April, I'd decided that I was just doing it for fun.  To prove to myself that I could still run 42.2km.

But today, Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake.   I was there, just seven days ago, with an amazing bunch of young Award participants and adults, trekking in the Everest Valley and seeing the sights in Kathmandu.   Today, many of the places we visited have been destroyed and we don't yet have news about the safety (or otherwise) of the friends we made on our trail.

Oxfam is there.   Their team on the ground is assessing needs right now.  You can help.   Please sponsor my marathon run and help Oxfam.
