Story

About me:

On Sunday April 28th I'll be running the London Marathon to raise money for the Gurkha Welfare Trust, a brilliant charity providing much-needed support to former Gurkha soldiers and their families. On returning to Nepal, veterans may face long-term health problems, often service related, endure natural disasters or experience one of the many normal difficulties commonly encountered in old age. The Trust works directly with former soldiers and their families to ensure that they can live securely and with dignity.

Obviously that all sounds great, but spending every weekend running (or recovering from running) is pretty rotten, so I'm asking you to part with some of your hard-earned cash in solidarity. I'm aiming to breach the £1,000 barrier so all donations will be gratefully received, however small. (And if any one of you are peeved to be reading yet another Nathan fundraising page, consider it a small price to pay for your exalted and exclusive status as one of my Facebook friends).

On a serious note, the cause is an important one and I'm working hard to get a good time, so I really appreciate your support.

The cause:

The Gurkha Welfare Trust ensures that Gurkha veterans, their widows and their wider communities are able to live with dignity in Nepal, through the provision of financial, medical and community aid. You can visit the Charity's official website here: https://www.gwt.org.uk
