I am passionate about my work with Cleft and plan to run a solo marathon every month starting in December 2022 finishing in September 2023 with the Berlin marathon. May even managed a 50 mile marathon somewhere in the middle. I wanted to make it a big challenge as I am quite a keen runner already. Wish me luck and please help me to raise money for this wonderful charity if you can.

CLEFT is focused on providing permanent, sustainable ways to improve cleft care both in the UK and overseas. Broadly speaking, they can be described in two categories. Firstly through sponsorship of research projects in the UK to help identify the likely causes of clefts and secondly, by supporting projects in lower-income countries to help provide long-term treatment and care for less privileged people born with clefts.
