Money raised for charity over
the past 3 years exceeds £10,000

I have previously walked 100km, non stop, across the South Downs raising more than £5,000 for Oxfam and the Gurkha Welfare Trust. Last year, she took part in the Edinburgh Marathon, raising more than £1,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. And just recently finished the London Marathon. More

I recently ran the London Marathon in memory of my father. I wanted to raise funds and awareness for the Samaritans. I collected just over £2500 from this event. 15 years ago my farther took his own life. It has always been a struggle to talk about it. Life could have been a lot different today if my dad had made use of the services the charity offer. I want to raise funds for them because I understand what they do and the benefits it could bring. The charity can help a lot of people.

What next?

I’m running the London Marathon again for the Samaritans this year and, looking forward, I hope to raise more money in years to come by attempting new challenges, such as a trek to Kilimanjaro or Everest base camp. I’ve got a number of races coming up in the next few months, including three half marathons and my first triathlon.


This is me at the finishing line of the 2013 Edinburgh Marathon. I raised £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. A huge thank you to everyone who donated.

A Book by Marie Gould - The Weight Of Water

Rae Shepherd returns to Cornwall to discover that her estranged brother Luke has been killed while scuba diving and soon begins to suspect that his death might not have been an accident. Luke was looking for the wreck of their father's boat, the Abigail Rose, when he died and it eventually becomes apparent that her brother's death might be related not only to the loss of their father at sea, but also to the disappearance of Rae's best friend over a decade before. Driven by a desire to uncover the truth, she risks her family, health and her life to find out what happened before she fled her childhood home and soon finds herself in a desperate battle with time, the elements and her own sanity.
