This weekend I kick start my training towards the Amsterdam Marathon buoyed by the prospect of maybe doing a little good.
I have adopted St Columba’s Hospice charity for my fundraising efforts as a thank you for the help they afforded my dad when he was dying from cancer.
I’m still working out the logistics, but running and cycling will be up there along with a little more weight loss.
Today I remain over the moon at having hit my £1000 target for Scottish Mountain Rescue with the help of so many people.
Now I’ve raised the bar again – this time aiming to raise £1500 – or as much as people are willing to give.
And it’s off to a flyer already.
My friend Martine McNee has fired straight in with a donation of £20 – which became £25 after she had the foresight to tick the Gift Aid box.
And I’ve had pledges already for another £70 from friends promising to chip in.
If you can and feel like helping out, you can donate here too which would be just brilliant.
Regardless, have a great weekend, and wish me luck with the exercise ahead.
