Liz Fothergill

Challenge Date:

25 March 2018

My Challenge:

London Landmarks Half Marathon




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £815.00

Offline Total: £0.00

Gift Aid: £188.75

I am significantly older than when I ran my last (and first!) half marathon in Windsor in my early 30s... several years and 2 children later and the training is harder than it was then - can’t think why?!

I am raising funds for a Compassion project in Burkina Faso, Western Africa. Our family have sponsored Viviane (pictured), a girl aged 9 (the same age as our daughter Kirsten), who lives in Burkina Faso for 5 years. Through Compassion we write to Viviane and our sponsorship enables her to attend school, have regular health/dental checks and attend a weekly project. I would like to raise funds for the project which Viviane attends, to benefit both Viviane, her family and other children/families who attend the project.

If you would like to sponsor me, I am confident that your money would go to help some of the otherwise poorest families who would have limited life opportunities. Please visit the main Compassion website to find out more about the projects and how the money would be spent.

Alternatively, if you would like to sponsor a child through Compassion, I can highly recommend it - we love hearing from Viviane about her life and the difference Compassion’s support makes.

Thank you.
