Story

Hello! You have made it to my Fundraising page for the Great Manchester Run

I'm running as a fundraiser this year to help young people from around the world access a world-class education at the University of Manchester.

Great things about Manchester?

  • Its wonderful sense of identity
  • The musical history and great Manchester bands
  • The University!

My history of fundraising for the University of Manchester goes back to my time as a Masters student there. I took a part-time job for the Alumni fund - I had no idea what that was, but over the year I learnt so much about the impact that giving to this University can have. It can genuinely change someone's life, and no one should be denied a good education because they cannot afford it.

In a way, this is about social mobility - I believe that intelligence does not correlate with your family's fortune.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.


I really tried to share a picture of me running, but I always look terrible when I run. Sorry. Too vain.
