    Hello

    Win £100 by guessing my finishing time in the London Marathon, for Any donation from £1 sponsored

    My charity is

    The Children's Trust Tadworth

    They are amazing, they help children with multiple brain injuries/disabilities, you can read all about them here

    Any sponsorship, however small goes to a really great place, so anything you can manage would be brilliant

    When you donate there is a message box, if you put a time along with your message, the winner gets £100 out of my pocket :)

    All day I've tried to think of an appropriate response to your kindness, a way of saying it that does it justice, I'm blown away

    you guys are simply amazing

    theres only one word that really covers it, from me and those who can't say it....

    THANKYOU
