PLEASE SPONSOR ME (IF YOU CAN)I have a place in The Great North Run on 16th September - my first, and maybe my last half-marathon!As many of you know my family have connections with Jamaica, which started when my sister was an aid worker there some 25 years ago. Since then, with the help of friends my parents have been able to provide on-going help. Disadvantaged children from poor homes have been educated, some to degree level, deprived families have been given medication, clothing, seed and livestock (chickens, pigs and goats), helping them to be self-sufficient, and some houses have been repaired or rebuilt. They have travelled there on several occasions to ensure that the funds are well used, and have taken supporters with them so that they can see for themselves what has been accomplished.For the past 10 years, I have been sponsoring a child called Vanessa, who is cared for by her grandmother. It is becoming more expensive as she progresses to further education, but with your support I hope to continue to help her. Co-incidentally sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good at running Ã¢â‚¬â€œ better than me, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure!If you can sponsor me, I would be very grateful. Every penny(!) I raise, will be used effectively as my parents cover all administration costs.Thank you all, whether or not you can help.LizzieP.S. This fundraising account is being managed by my family so you may see the name 'Bendell' during the PaPal payment process.
