As a local postman I see the world around me every day. A smile from the happy recipient of an exciting parcel or a friendly wave from the familiar faces of the community I serve. My eyes are my world; from being able to do the job I do to seeing my children’s faces as they grow.
This is why I have decided to run the London Marathon on behalf of LOOK UK in April 2020. LOOK UK is a small UK charity that supports
young visually impaired people aged 11 – 29 and their families to thrive. Through a free peer to peer online mentoring service, a programme of well-being events, a helpline and an accessible holiday flat lives of these young people and their families are enriched. Your money will go towards creating LOOK UK’s vision of being part of a world where young blind and partially sighted people are valued, included and able to fulfil their potential. With the right support and opportunities they will feel confident and connected to their community in the same way that you
and I are. I am so humbled that I can bring together my love of running with this fantastic charity and hope that you will join me in trying to raise much-needed funds for this very worthwhile cause. Thank you for taking the time to read this;
please give whatever you can!
