On Sunday 28 April a team of five current and former officeholder and staff from the National Farmers Union who aren't fit enough and who don't really have enough time will be running the 2019 London Marathon.
We re running (some of us slowly) for the amazing Farm Africa Charity which we all have some connections with and this is where we need you help. Farm Africa is a fantastic charity helping reduce poverty in eastern Africa by helping farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more delivering long term sustainable solutions to rural communities. Your contributions are so gratefully received and will provide us all with inspiration during the long, wet and cold training runs and during the big day itself
Between 8 February and 8 May donations in support of my London Marathon challenge will go to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal. Give before 8 May 2019 and all public donations to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal will be doubled by the UK government. Your donation will support Farm Africa projects across eastern Africa, and the matched funding you unlock from the UK government will directly fund a Farm Africa project that will give women in Kanungu in northern Uganda the opportunity to make a decent living from coffee farming
Thank you for your support
