London Marathon Fundraising Update

This is a huge amount of money to raise, so I’ve decided to give myself the best chance, I’d start fundraising right away! In order to confirm my acceptance of my charity place, I was asked to kickoff my fundraising with a £100 donation. I did this pretty much the same day I received the email offering me the charity place. With my £100 donation confirmed, I’m… [Read More]

For example, my kitchen is pretty easy to clean as the surfaces are pretty empty. Most… [Read More]
