This is basically a thread to beg for sponsorship for a half marathon I have rather stupidly agreed to run in Chesterfield on the 22nd October this year.
I am raising money for Mind because mental health will affect many of us in our lives, and whether people experience stress, anxiety, depression and other problems, access to NHS treatment and support is just not good enough and lags unfairly behind physical health.
Mind not only campaign for better services but also provide valuable support and advice to help people navigate a complicated underfunded service, but also more importantly give people some-one to talk to.
Along with pleas for donations I will also post updates here on just exactly how bad my training is going so that those of you who enjoy some kind of vicarious thrill in the pain and failure of others can revel in my self inflicted torture.
All donations will be gratefully received through my Justgiving page as its important to be transparent, and of course Gift Aid can be added directly.
You can also give through your phone if you don't have a Justgiving account set up.
Simply text 70070 with the code WGCD 66 and put your donation eg £5 etc
