London Marathon 2016

Dear Supporters

I completed the London Marathon 2016!! A fantastic day, fantastic atmosphere, fantastic people and supporters. It was an experience that I shall never forget and felt privileged to be a part of.

The running conditions were a little chilly to start but ideal for me. It wasn’t really about the time but I completed in 5 hours 14 minutes. I had been training at 11minute mile so was really chuffed with the result.

Thank you everyone for your support, well wishes and donations to help me raise funds for such a wonderful charity.

I have recovered really well, and planning for the next Marathon, Yes I enjoyed it that much I want to do another – MAD!

One village has at least 300 household and there are 5 villages with a population of 80,000. All the members of one family will live under one roof, Life expectancy here is only 40 years of age!

Bhi is a two day walk from Gamgadi in Mugu or a 2 day walk from Kolti, Bajura. They work with basic equipment offering basic care in a two room building – one for Child Birth and the other for physical examinations. They do however have network connectivity so are able to connect to Swinfen Telemedicine for medical advice.
