London Marathon 2017



Welcome to my fundraising page, I am hoping to raise as much as possible for Standing Start Trust by

running the London Marathon in April 2017.

Farnborough, Kent. I have never run a marathon before so this will be a first for me and I am very

much looking forward to the whole experience.  I am married with a lovely husband and two even

lovelier children aged 13 and 16yrs.

2007. The Charity does great work in helping people with neurological conditions and has branched

and  Multiple Sclerosis.  The Charity also supports various relevant research projects into the

aforementioned neurological conditions to help gain a better understanding of theses debilitating



Help to improve the lives of people by sponsoring me to do the London Marathon either per mile or

in it’s entirety.  If you are a tax payer then please Gift Aid any donations as the Charity gets the

tax rebated at no cost to the Donor.
