London Marathon Challenge

This is a selfish post for which I apologise not at all.

For those who are sad enough to read my thread, they will already know that having reached goal - my new 'challenge' is to complete the London Marathon on April 13th.

As this is likely to be the ONLY time I am stupid enough to try a Marathon, I have decided to raise money for the Charity SHELTER (running for shelter - get it?).

Seriously though, our HQ is in Mayfair and it has always shocked me to see people living in doorways just opposite the Ritz or Green Park - a truly sad reflection on Life. So, whilst SHELTER may not be able to help these people, the idea that in society these days, there are people who struggle to have the basic 'Roof over the Head' and SHELTER will help them.

So, I am appealing for sponsorship, BIG or small, and to that end have got a fundraising page (many, many thanks to Cah-Ching for pointing me this way)

Justgiving - Martin Higson's Fundraising Page

and I would appeal/beg/implore/ask very, very nicely that you consider clicking on the link and making a small donation to the cause.

I will be eternally grateful for anything given

Many thanks.

Mindless

ps.

Mini/Pierce, if I have breached Forum Protocol, I apologise but find this the best way to reach all the wonderful, fantastic, generous, giving Mimimisers out there in miniminsland.

I work for a homeless charity and SHELTER is a great caise.. I will sort the sponsorship out soon...

good luck and hope the trainings going well?
I've just managed it back to the gym and am aiming for the Great North Run later in the year!!!!

Why thank you kind lady

The people at Cambridge have hint-imated about the Great North Run as well as I think they had a team in last year (Icemoose ran if I recall correctly)

Well done for getting back in the gym - when the pain subsides, its worth it LOL

Morning Mr Mindless :)

I also work with people who often have no accommodation and sleep wherever they can. Shelter do so much good work and will be delighted from any donations I am sure.

I too will sort out sponsorship for this.

Best of luck,

Lacey :D

Why thank you Mrs Isis,

I am aiming to raise £3000 - at least half by private contributions and this matched by my company - reckon that'll be the hardest part :-(

Also being dead cheeky and asking customer to do the same and aim to get 6 of their senior management completely legless on thursday in my quest to do so LOL

Look forwards to your help
