Hi all, I'm running in the London marathon in April and trying to raise as much money, and as much awareness of two fantastic charities, the first is Nightingale House Hospice in Wrexham, North Wales, it will obviously not raise much awareness in this area, as they do specifically look after people within the North Wales and surrounding areas, but they do great work there. Even though I live in Christchurch I am originally from North Wales, hence the connection. The second charity is DebRA who are a national charity looking after people with a terrible skin condition EB. Please take a look at my web site http://tinyurl.com/4vhbfzg where you will find links to the charities web sites and you can gain more information about the fantastic work they do.

    Good luck to you. Have you done the marathon before? It must be agony, I don't know how people manage it, especially those who dress up in those weird and wonderful costumes. Will you be dressed up?

    !st time at doing it, and no, no costumes, going to be bad enough getting around dressed as me! Just trying to raise as much sponsorship as possible for two fantastic charities.

    I know how hard it is to raise money for these kinds of events. If you would like to organise additional events, I am happy to offer Bournemouth Sports Club as a fund raising venue, for events such as a race night, or a bingo night, or a ticket dance event etc. Please contact me at the club (01202 581933). Good luck Simon Stewart

    Many thanks for that, and many thanks for all your good luck wishes - I'd be even more grateful to get more sponsorship :)
    Please read this story http://tinyurl.com/6kemwgq and you'll see why I'm trying to raise as much money, and as much awareness as possible - it really is a fantastic cause, and even a couple of pound will make a huge difference to the total, as it all adds up. www,virginmoneygiving.com/richardjones2207
