We are both running our first ever London marathon this year, in memory of our older sister Charlotte, who was killed in Burundi at the end of 2000.

The Charlotte Wilson Memorial Fund was originally set up to support poorer students at the school in Shyogwe, Rwanda, where Charlotte had been teaching. We have since widened our work to fund other small education, health and peace building projects in Rwanda, Burundi and Congo.

Our fundraising took a hit for a while due to the (hugely rewarding!) responsibilities of having young families, so this is a great opportunity to get things back on track.

We both won our marathon places via the ballot -we'd each entered somewhat speculatively, assuming it was highly unlikely that we'd get in on the first attempt.

So it was a bit of a shock to find that we'd both got a place - but we are up for the challenge!
