Saturday 21 October 2023
Reaching the ripe age of 55 this year I have decided to sign up to complete my first ever Marathon!
In October 2023 the Dramathon event will take place in the beautiful Speyside countryside starting from Ballindalloch Castle and finishing in Dufftown home of Glenfiddich, as part of this commitment from myself i am looking for support to help 3 great charities:
Von Hippel Lindau - My son has been fighting and will continue to fight this genetic disorder, he has had so many major operations over the last 10 years and continues to fight the battle against VHL, Funds will go to the VHL Alliance Charity (VHL) that helps with Research, Support to the VHL community. Press and Journal Article
Epilepsy Research - My Daughter has suffered Seizure from a very young age, which has impacted her development into adult hood, only form of help seems to be medication to ebate the neurological activity, What more can be done? Research - how can we understand and help find a cure - Epilepsy Reasearch Charity (Epilepsy Research (UK) !
MND - the final Charity that I have personally been supporting for years. The work that Doddie Weir, Rob Burrows and Kevin Sinfield have done is amazing, this old body can't manage the feat of what Kevin is achieving, but his commitment to fight for a cure for his best friend is remarkable. #DoddieAid
The three charities is super special to me and i hope you can find some spare cash in this very challenging time with so much pressure that we are all experiencing to help me achieve £555 pounds to each of these charities, lets keep the number 5 in our thoughts.
