I have been trying to keep this blog solely for professional stuff for a while, and keeping the personal stuff for my other blog, so please forgive this brief, off-topic post…
Regular readers will know that I lost my sister, Mandi, earlier this year. In her memory, on 15 September I will be taking part in the Winston’s Wish Sunrise Walk. Winston’s Wish is a charity that supports bereaved children: they have been an enormous help to my family in looking after Mandi’s two little boys since they lost their mother.
I set up a JustGiving page for this event a few months ago, and have been overwhelmed with how generous everyone has been so far – particularly my Twitter friends! I wanted to first of all say a massive thank you to everyone who’s donated so far, and also to bring this to the attention of anyone who’s not seen it yet.
I don’t really like asking for money, but I’m so close to my fundraising target now that I thought it was worth an extra push. If anyone reading would be willing to sponsor me for this event, any amount would be hugely appreciated.
