I have two young daughters growing up in this wonderful community and I want that future for them.

Either because you like the idea of cleaner green spaces or stronger communities, please donate.

I will be posting pictures of my progress towards a 25km target (the length of London’s new #SuperSewers, being built by Tideway, the company I work for). Tideway's #makeadifference campaign was what inspired me to to do something for my local community.

Do get in touch if you want to get involved in some way - I'd love to chat with you.

Thank you for your support. #makeadifference
