You may be or may be not already aware that I am running The London Marathon next month. I have now decided to run and raise money for The Bluebell Wood Childrens Hospice. They do an excellent job with very ill children and fully deserve any monies that we can raise for them.
They have set me up with a “just giving” account the link is http://www.justgiving.com/KeithLindley Also there is a text message facility for donating simply text LMKL70 followed by the £amount you wish to donate to 70070 Im not asking anyone to break the bank but all donations will be gratefully appreciated both by myself and Bluebell Wood.
Keep on running and smiling, remember some children can’t!
