Running London Marathon to raise money for VSO
We have been planning our RTW trip for eight months now, and have been a member here for 6 of them. If I enjoy the trip half as much as I have this time it will be a great trip.
As part of the trip we want to give back to society and hence will be raising money for VSO. Along the way we hope to visit several of there sites, and woud like to raise the equivilant to the cost of the trip for them. We estimate this will be approxiamately £30k. So far we have raised £195
So to get this moving I am hoping to run the London Marathon (I am not anathlete), and hope to raise some money this way.
To try and encourage sponsorship, and help us get to our initial target, we are going to donate 50p for every £1 that is given to us, up to a limit of a £500 donation by us. This way we will hopefully raise the minimum of £1500 that VSO request we raise to cover our charity place in the marathon.
If you would like to help out, or want to know more about our trip or VSO then please visit our website mentioned below.

Please also note that none of the money raised for charity is going on the trip. the trip will be totally self funded (hence the delayed departure date)
Thanks in advance to anyone who does donate - VSO greatly appreciate it.
