My story

As a teacher, one of the most challenging things to contemplate in these unprecedented times is that many of our vulnerable families are stuck at home and struggling to feed their children who usually rely heavily on free school meals each day.

Feeling a bit helpless, I have decided to open a fundraising page for our local food bank - Leeds North and West - in the hope that any donations made will go towards helping the families in question.

My end of the bargain? To guarantee you I’ll run 100 miles in April. This is a personal challenge to give me a bit of focus this month (I won’t rabbit on about the mental health benefits of running...) and a distance I have managed before, however the key bit of this adventure is the fact I have to do it SOLO. Those of you that know how chatty I am will understand how tricky this is. Running has always been an extremely sociable hobby for me, so having to run all this distance on my own is a whole new challenge (and one I have definitely struggled with at times!)

But if achieving this also encourages people to donate to this worthy cause, then it’ll definitely help with the motivation! Please give what you can to help our most vulnerable families. Thank you :)
