We empower local medical professionals to provide cleft treatment around the world


Well, this is it, the London Marathon. It'll be something to achieve as part of my 60th birthday celebrations, and after a year or more with few if any running events taking place,  it is definitely something to look forward to.

I know everyone is always asking for donations these days, and I am extremely grateful to every single person who has taken the time to come to this page. As a thank you, I am offering to write you a poem! Now, it’ll be more Pam Ayres than Wordsworth, but if you or yours have a special birthday, anniversary, whatever, coming up, and you’d like a few suitable words, do please get in touch. :-)

I’m always being complimented on my smile ( even when running up Heartbreak Hill at Wallace parkrun....) so I’m delighted to be raising money for The Smile Train. They work with children born with a cleft, ensuring they can get the necessary operations and medical care to enable them to smile. We all could do with a few more smiles these days! 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
