I am running the Virtual London Marathon on 3rd October. I’ve never ran a Marathon before. I am also raising money for a local charity, Keepthebeat. If you can manage a donation, however small it would be much appreciated. I will post regular updates and the route nearer the time. Thanks.

It’s so special when anyone decides to fundraise for KEEPTHEBEAT.

When a family that has gone through so much and had such a huge loss, reaches out to try and give to others that will join a CHD journey it’s incredibly brave, thoughtful and generous. ❤️💙

We are very grateful to be part of Isaac’s legacy, and thoughts are with his very kind family x
