Plane Safety Podcast ; Pip's London Marathon appeal

Hi everyone

I’m very excited to have secured a charity runners entry in the 2016 London Marathon. This will be a huge challenge for me to train, prepare and then run the 26.2 miles (42km) through London on 24th April 2016.

I am running on behalf of the Huntingdons Disease Association and am aiming to raise at least £2000 (approx $3000).  Every single penny, pound, cent, dollar, yen, shilling, euro and buck raised will go to the HDA charity, whose aim is to aid those affected and to develop treatments and ultimately find a cure. Whilst this is a UK based charity, their work and research helps people all over the world.

I am asking for YOUR help in raising as much as possible. Every donation will help inspire and motivate me. In return for your kind donation you will get personal recognition and thanks on the podcast PLUS I am planning to produce a special Plane Safety Podcast episode recorded live from the marathon just for you !

So, if you can afford to, please consider donating to this very worthy cause….. every penny counts. Please follow the link below which will take you to my donations site, managed by Virgin Money.
