I work for University of East London as a student money advisor. I was raised up in East London and I am very passionate about supporting my local community. As part of my commitment to civic engagement, I am running a half marathon for Manorfield Primary School in Tower Hamlets, East London.

Manorfield Primary School is situated in Tower Hamlets which is one of the most deprived parts of the country and serves an underprivileged community. Tower Hamlets has the highest rate of child poverty in London. It is the second most deprived borough in London and is the third most deprived borough nationally.

We want to give the children and families that we work with the very best start in life.  We believe that, despite the huge barriers many of our children face, we will not use these as excuses, but will find ways to overcome these barriers and enable the children to achieve both academically and in all that they do.

We are moving forward with plans to rebuild our much needed new Nursery (a £600,000 project) and all funds raised will go directly towards the redevelopment of the nursery and outdoor play equipment.

Event details

The Big Half

The Big Half - - is a brand new half-marathon created by London Marathon Events and on the London Marathon course next March. 

I am one of a team of nearly 200 runners, all running to raise funds for the new Nursery and outdoor play equipment at Manorfield Primary School.

Please sponsor me to run The Big Half.

Every donation will encourage me to train hard and on the actual day to run further and faster!

Together with the other runners, also running for this great cause, we can raise a significant amount of money for the school and help make the dream of our new Nursery a reality for our community.
