Please can I have your support?

On April 3rd I shall be running the Giant's Daughter with good friends Tim, Steve and Charlotte.  Two pupils at my school, Will and Ollie, lost their father in 2003 when the helicopter in which he was travelling crashed in Iraq.  This year my Tutor group have been raising money for Help for Heroes in his memory – we thought that we'd try to add a little to their effort.
The Giant's Daughter is a 30 mile off-road challenge, set in the hills around the famous Cerne Abbas Giant.  It's not a race, but we have set ourselves the target of completing the route in 5 ½ hours.  Training is going well so far, this weekend I look set to pass the 300 mile mark for this year, and while we're pretty confident of finishing, the target time is still a pretty significant challenge and will depend very much on the terrain and conditions we find.
If you feel this is worthy of a contribution, we've set up a Virgin Money Giving page and anything donated will be very gratefully received.

Many thanks...
