Children the ages of my two (Alex 7 and William 5) shouldn't have to walk through a minefield to get to school every day. Their mothers shouldn't have to do the same to get water and their families should have to retrieve their cattle from a minefield.
I'm raising money to clear minefields in villages where this happens in north east Zimbabwe. People there don't have many options in life. Clearing minefields removes dangerous choices and allows them to start to develop. Where minefields are cleared infant nutrition is improved due to more land being available. This improves school attendance and performance.
All donations will be doubled by the UK Aid Match scheme.
I'm running the London Santa Run on 8th December. I haven't done any running for a decade and I've left training late so this is a genuine challenge for me. I'm confident I can do 5km and will be doing my best to complete 10km.
Thanks for the support and for giving to a brilliant cause.
