Hi folks,

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. 

Many of you will know that I am always up for a challenge and with this New Year comes a new and daunting one! I am taking
on my first marathon for a very good cause

In 2015, I lost my job and my health and I suddenly became acutely aware of how vulnerable one can become with no warning. I am lucky in that I had the amazing support of family and friends who kept me going through difficult times. It’s not like that for everyone however, and it made me think what it would be like if I didn’t
have those people to fall back on. 
That is why I am hugely proud to represent the British Charitable Fund in the running of the London Marathon on 22nd April 2018.

The mission of the BCF is to provide immediate and critical financial assistance to British nationals most in need throughout France. By emotionally supporting me in my training journey and your donations to the charity, we together become the lifeline for those in desperate need of support.
