"In April of this year, I will be running the London Marathon, my first ever marathon and something I have always hoped to do since the age of about 10!!
I am raising money for SportsAid, a charity that gives financial support to Britain's top Junior athletes hoping to one day qualify for the Olympics (both Summer and Winter). Previous recipients of their funding include: many Olympic gold medallists at London 2012, 4 of the current GB Short Track Team who raced in Sochi, many Club Members past and present including MYSELF (many moons ago now!!)
