I'M RUNNING THE LONDON MARATHON!

This year I received a very essential and important Christmas present...a pair of Brooks Ghost 6 running trainers. Whilst running trainers are not my usual choice of footwear (I would much rather spend over £100 on a fancy pair of Topshop heels!), I was delighted that my boyfriend treated me to a sturdy and comfortable pair of trainers as I'm running the London Marathon in 2014!

A few months ago I decided to take up the challenge and run the marathon for the first time in support of a family friend called Ella whilst representing the Children with Cancer UK charity.

Since being diagnosed, Ella who is aged 10, has remained strong, happy and undeterred by her illness which I think is remarkable. Whilst Ella's parents have also shown great strength and willpower to fight this illness which effects approximately 1,600 children every year in the UK.
It is because of this sheer strength and determination that I have decided to run the London Marathon as a testament to Ella and her family during this tough and challenging time.
I am currently preparing my training plan to start in the New Year and my fundraising target currently stands at £2000 which I hope to achieve over the next few months! The money raised will help the charity to cure and treat childhood cancer whilst I am also hoping to donate a significant amount to Ella that will go towards her life-changing treatment.
I have plenty of fundraising activities planned and will keep you all updated via my blog but if you can spare a donation towards my fundraising total, I would really appreciate your support for Ella and this great cause.
You can find out more on my Just Giving Page here: 

To donate via text send the code OTXS60 with the amount to 70070.
