I'm a husband, father, and minister in the Church of England. I've recently got into running, and am so excited for my first marathon :)


I believe passionately in what Compassion do. Their work in meeting children's basic needs and giving them an education is life-changing, for both the child and their family.

We sponsor a child in Ecuador through Compassion, and both what our sponsorship achieves, and also the way Compassion go about what they do, is truly excellent. This is the love of Jesus in action.

I’ll be running to save the lives of vulnerable mothers and babies in Togo, by supporting the important work of Compassion’s child survival projects through their Different Path Appeal. If you give before 24 June 2019 your donation will be doubled by the UK government so we will be able to support even more mothers and babies.
