How your fundraising money can help us


Could answer a call for help


Could keep Samaritans' phone line open for one hour


Could train 10 new volunteers

The London Marathon is the best day of the year in London. I've completed marathons in Singapore, New York, Amsterdam, Dublin but London is always my favourite. It's my home town and the atmosphere is electric. My fundraising ensures that there is always someone on the end of a phone to help someone in need and get them through the bad times.
