A cheeky request

If you’ve been enjoying my blog then you’ll know I’m training for the London Marathon both as a personal challenge and to raise funds for Asthma UK.

It would be fantastic if you could support me in this. If you would like to donate you can do so via my Virgin Money page.

Remember that I am paying for my flights, hotel, entry fee and other expenses myself – 100% of your donation will go towards helping raise funds for and awareness of the work Asthma UK is doing.

Some facts to consider:-

  • In Northern Ireland 182,000 people (1 in 10) are currently receiving treatment for asthma. This includes 36,000 children and 146,000 adults.
  • In Scotland, 368,000 people (1 in 14) are currently receiving treatment for asthma. This includes 72,000 children and 296,000 adults.
  • In Wales 314,000 people (1 in 10) are currently receiving treatment for asthma. This consists of 59,000 children and 256,000 adults.
  • In England, 4,500,000 people (1 in 11) are currently receiving treatment for asthma. This consists of 932,000 children and 3,600,000 adults.
