I’m putting these long legs to good use; causes are art-related or book-inspired. Follow me on Strava / Twitter for updates on my muddy limbs and photos of the Thames.


On 31 May 2020, I’m running the Needles Half Marathon on the Isle of Wight, known as one of the toughest and most scenic HMs in the country. I’ll be fundraising for Wight DASH: ‘We support women who experience domestic violence, poor mental health, substance abuse & isolation. We work for all women on this island.’ Read more & donate.


On 8 March 2020, I’m running the Surrey Half Marathon in Woking to support Doorstep Library: ‘We train volunteers to visit some of London’s most disadvantaged areas & introduce children, aged 1 to 11, to the pleasure & inspiration of reading.’ Read more & donate.

Prior to collecting these fundraising efforts together, I had arranged three others: one was solo for Alzheimer’s Society (£1,250) while two were with teams, for Anaphylaxis Campaign and Pancreatic Cancer Action, which collectively raised £87,000.
