London Walks guide Andy Hallett (that's him in the pic) is running a half marathon for a great charity. Can you help him out? Here he is…
I am fundraising for a great charity called Young Epilepsy by running the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday October 6th.
Young Epilepsy is the national charity working exclusively on behalf of children and young people with epilepsy. With over 100 years expertise they provide world class diagnosis, assessment and rehabilitation for children and young people with epilepsy.
They also provide support and information for parents, children and young people and training for professionals. They campaign for better access to, and quality of, health and education services and offer tailor-made training across the country for parents, teenagers and health, social care and education professionals and also work in schools.
They also have a specialist school and college, providing day, residential and short break services, up to the age of 25, offering education and healthcare for children and young people with epilepsy, autism and other neurological conditions.
It’s a fantastic charity and one I am particularly interested in and proud to fund raise for as my Dad suffers from Epilepsy, which was particularly tricky when he was a very young boy. Also they obviously don't get much, I've never heard a charity so grateful to get a phone call. They could do with some support.
Please help me make a difference by making a donation to my Virgin Money Giving page.
To find out more about the charity go to www.virginmoneygiving.com/AndrewHallett where you can also sponsor me online.
Don't forget to tick the box to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation if you're a UK tax payer. Virgin Money Giving will pass this on in full to charity, making your donation go even further.
Thanks for all your support,
Andy Hallett x
Good luck Andy!
