Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I’m running the Brighton Marathon to raise money for The Royal Brompton Hospital’s #ManyMoreHearts Appeal.

The Royal Brompton work tirelessly to treat and beat heart disease, which causes a ¼ of all deaths in the UK. The #ManyMoreHearts appeal is raising £400,000 to fund pioneering equipment that will improve the lives of hundreds of patients who undergo life-saving treatment in their ‘Cath Lab’ each year. The 'Cath Lab' is where heart patients go for procedures and tests, like angiograms and angioplasties. It is also where a patient would go to have a pacemaker fitted.

Any pennies you can spare will help patients to return to their normal lives, families & friends far sooner .

This is my first marathon – *eek* - and my aim is simply to complete the race in one piece 😉 Your generosity and support is motivating me through the chilly training runs and will spur me to the finish line on the day! If you fancy coming to sunny Brighton on Sunday 15th April to watch me puff my way up the city’s hills, I would love to see you there x

Thank you for getting involved in this important cause - your support means the world to me, the Royal Brompton and the patients they treat!
