"Hi everyone & welcome to my page.
I never thought that I'd get a ballot place for this years London Marathon, especially as it was my first time applying but here we are. Running 26.2 miles, without stopping, can't be that difficult can it?????
When thinking about what charity to pick I decided to keep it local and run for the Carers of Barking & Dagenham. It's hard to imagine how challenging life can be when having to care for one of your loved ones and still concentrate in school & everyday life.
These individuals deserve huge recognition & praise for their efforts & I hope the money I raise will have a positive impact in their lives.
I have set myself a target of £2000 and here's what the money will go towards;
£ 200.00 - will provide a fun respite activity for 10 young carers.
£ 50.00 - funds a day placement for a person with dementia.
£ 35.00 - funds a tutor to spend an hour with 6 young carers.
£ 20.00 - will support a carer in crisis with a home visit.
£ 5.00 - pays for emergency telephone support to 6 carers in crisis.
That's enough from me, it's now over to you. Any donation (no matter how big or small) will be greatly appreciated.
