A huge thank you to everyone who supported my charity auction last Saturday. It was a huge team effort and we raised (with gift aid) a whopping £3,500! Together with such generosity through sponsorship, the total raised is now pushing £8,000! This is fantastic and will purchase 160 water filters, providing clean water for at least 800 people for the rest of their lives. Thank you so much.

- Thank you to Ceri, my wife, whose constant love and support and tireless organisation of my training around my haphazard daily schedule has made it all possible. I love you so much.
So, just the small matter of 26 miles 385 yards …. bring it on!
