Six months to the big day, I thought it was time to go live with my fundraising. Having decided on a charity a while ago, for reasons I won’t go into here, I’ve now set up a JustGiving webpage to raise money for Anthony Nolan. I’ve spread the word on my Facebook and Twitter accounts, and I’ll try and work out how to do the same on LinkedIn too. Apparently it’s all about social media these days.

I’d thought I’d aim for £2,000 which is what it’s costing me to take part, so it kind of feels like there should be a net benefit somewhere along the way (otherwise I would have written out a cheque myself and saved my poor legs!). If I don’t raise that much so be it, but if I do all the better. I guess some people are going to be fed of me chugging them for the next 6 months!
