Hello & good morning lovely people. Hope this is OK to post here
This week I am travelling allllll the way to the delightful Edinburgh so that on Sunday I can do something completely bonkers that only an idiot would do: run a marathon!
I am running my first marathon for a charity called Campaign Against Living Miserably, which is a male mental health charity. They are working to reduce the stigma of talking about mental health and challenging male stereotypes, as well as offering services like a confidential free helpline for those who need to talk. The main goal being to reduce suicide rates, because suicide is the single biggest cause of death in men under the age of 45.
This is a cause close to my heart, as I lost my eldest brother in 2000 and then a second brother in 2017, both to suicide. Last week, a chap I've known on twitter for years took his own life after a battle with his health.
I need to raise another £800 to meet my goal of £2,000 for CALM and I'm hoping one or two of you would be able to stick a fiver in the pot to help me on my way. (I know some of you have already helped after my posts on twitter/facebook and really appreciate it - apologies for bombarding you

Thank you in advance, and again apologies if you've been spammed by this on twitter etc too.
