Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

What do you call a 70-year-old who's just run 22 miles, besides "idiot"?

Someone who's training for the London Marathon to raise money for a great cause.

In my case the cause is C-Potential, which is the new name for the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy.

It's a local institution (in Coppetts Wood near Muswell Hill) but it serves all of London and the Home Counties and is one of the few places in the country which provides both schooling and "conductive education" as developed by the Peto Institute in Budapest.

My sponsorship page (where you can also find a link to the Centre's website) is at https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraise...

Because I've already contributed the cost of my place in the marathon, anything you choose to give will be pure profit for the Centre.

All the best,

oh David does this mean we have to witness you running round the ladder again in your shorts and stuff for

 training. Groan. Happy  to sponsor though G 

Many thanks for the sponsorship, but normally I avoid shorts. Must have been some other idiot!

Good for you, David. You put many of the rest of us to shame!

Thanks, Hugh. As you can see, your site is already attracting sponsors for this wonderful cause, so thanks again.

Well done David.
