We believe in the power of education to help end poverty


Dear Friends,

Having reached 60 last year (which makes me a "Super Senior"), I decided to make this year's challenge a little less demanding so I'm going to run a half marathon each calendar month throughout the year. It's easier to train for a half than a full marathon or an ultra but it's still a real challenge. To "spice things up" a bit, I'm also competing in the Sevenoaks Triathlon in April and the Ride London 100 mile cycling sportive in July.

As ever, I'm raising funds for Build Africa. Last year's challenge raised £1,997 which took my aggregate tally over the years to over £70,000.

Please support me in the fight against poverty through education and the building of communities in sub-Saharan Africa by giving generously to Build Africa for whom I've now been running for almost 20 years.

Thanks so much and best wishes,
