Tommy Greenwood running 10k for IslandFarm Donkeys
As an Animal lover, and having visited the Donkeys at the Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary, I want to do anything that I can to help raise money...
Raising money for
Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary
Donations accepted until 15-06-2016
Hi, my name is Tommy Greenwood, I'm 14 years old and I live in Oakley, Buckinghamshire. I love animals especially Dogs, Donkeys and Elephants. I have 2 puppies at home called Hovis and Crumpet and I absolutely adore them. I also have a cat, a tortoise, 2 fish and a guinea pig. So as you can see I really do love animals! Let's just say I haven't had a bad start to life with me saying I've driven a Lamborghini, met Mark Webber and been Oxford United Chairman (Unfortunately it was only for one day!)!. I first went to Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary around 3 months ago. Seeing these placid, gentle, adorable donkeys made me think that I had to help these animals live the best lives they possibly could. I offered to run the Town and Gown 10k run in Oxford so I could raise as much money as I could for these delightful creatures. My target amount of money to raise is £250. £250 may not sound a lot but believe me, it is! If we exceed the target amount I will be ecstatic for myself and the donkeys.
The Oxford Town and Gown 10k
The Oxford Town and Gown 10k is a charity run around the streets Oxford going past the exotic Universities and Colleges of Oxford. In addition, we run in the beautiful Oxford University Parks which is a great place to run. This is my first ever 10k run so I am a little nervous but mostly excited. I am running with my Dad (John Greenwood) who has done it a couple of times before so it's down to him to give me some good, useful tips about running in this exciting charity event. It's the 35th anniversary of the Oxford Town and Gown this year which makes it an extra special year to race in it! As I'm only 14 years old it'll be an immense challenge but it'll be a challenge I'll be looking forward to as I know I'll be helping my special friends... the DONKEYS.
