Welcome to my fund raising page!
I have discovered that running can still be enjoyable (at least that's what I tell myself on cold winter mornings....) even in my rapidly advancing years. What started as a mid-life crisis to gain some fitness has grown into a bit of an obsession. To justify all that exertion I have decided to raise money for charities that I have a connection with. Action Through Enterprise Ghana is a charity started by Sarah Albeboure (Gardner), a Newbury primary school teacher in February 2012. Sarah was granted a sabbatical from her job to spend a year working for Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO). Posted to Lawra – a remote area of Upper West Ghana close to the border of Burkina Faso. There she found children rarely attended school because they spent the time  searching for food, often in dangerous circumstances.  In response to this, ATE launched it’s first free school meal programme and now provides nutritious school meals to over 930 children in Lawra District.   

Event details

Running the Lisbon Half Marathon

During a Christmas family get-together lunch my niece Rosie asked me how my running was going. Having recently completed the Great South Run I was foolishly upbeat ( and further helped by a couple of glasses of red wine) and before I knew it I had accepted her invitation to Lisbon, where she and her husband Adam are both teachers, to take part in the Lisbon Half Marathon!
