As you all know I am running the Colchester Half Marathon on Sunday 25th of March 2018. I watched last year, the crowd was electric, so supportive and I wanted to be a runner like the ones I was supporting. I vowed to make this my next running goal. It will be tough for me and it will likely break me for a couple of weeks but I’m determined to run it to the best of my ability. 
Very recently I had a wobble that I couldn’t do it, I also learned that Eden’s Youth Centre is in real danger of closing its doors, so running for this charity seemed the right thing to do. The Eden Centre and the affiliated church have given my daughter confidence and peace during a turbulent time in her life and it’s close to her heart. It is there for many children like my daughter and it would be awful to see this close. Please please could you consider donating a couple of pounds, the price of a takeaway coffee, towards this very worthy cause? It will help me and it will absolutely help them. 

Thank you so much xx
