I am proud to represent Action on Elder Abuse as their one and only London Marathon 2018 entrant. AEA are a wonderful charity that works to protect and prevent the abuse of vulnerable older adults. They look out for a group who are rarely prioritised but often the most in need by providing care, support and advice to protect older people who are most at risk. I hope when I and my loved ones get to a certain age, the AEA ethos will be widely acknowledged and embraced.

It will be my first marathon and as I rarely drive more than 26.2 miles without getting aggy, bored and uncomfortable, this will be a HUGE challenge for me. I'd be so so grateful for your support and sponsorship through these winter months of training and to make sure I actually make it to the (start and) finish line.

Fundraising updates to come as the weeks progress...watch this space!
