A non-work related post for you!
A little over a year after running the London Marathon for The Desk and Chair Foundation i received the loveliest news - the money raised has gone towards some solar lights for a village in Tanzania! So, a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored me! The London Marathon had always been on my bucket list and what better way to do it than raise some money for a well deserved charity at the same time!
Training was tough, race day was HOT and I was very nervous, but i made it! 5h 21m 16s, was a bit slower than i was hoping for but the heat made for a tough run.
The money has been put towards a second phase of solar lighting, benefitting around 30 families. They will save money on torch batteries and kerosene and no longer have to breathe in the fumes from burning it. Children will be able to study more efficiently and make the most of their education.
So, thank you for the sponsorship, safe to say it has been incredibly spent well!
