£1000 Raised Already

Wow!  You've already helped me to raise over £1000 with your donations and the gift aid for the charities that I am supporting with my Kilimanjaro challenge.  That's fantastic news and will make a difference to these charities, who desperately need the money to help them reach out to help more cancer patients bravely dealing with this awful illness.  Your help means a great deal to these people.

A particular thank you to everyone who has donated in response to my article "Becoming a Cancer Widower", which has been shared on Huffington Post, Macmillan and Yes To Life.  I've received many lovely comments from people saying that they found it helpful and inspiring, even though it also stirred up sadness at the same time.  I'm glad that so many people have connected with it and found it helpful.

 If you would like to read my article, you can find it on any of the following websites:

On the training side of things it's not such good news unfortunately as I've got a bit of a knee injury from playing badminton last week!  I'm going to rest it for a bit and hopefully it will settle down on its own but if not I may need to get advice from a Physio.  Luckily it's not serious and I probably just need to be a little bit more careful for a while.
