Raising money in aid of Vision Aid Overseas - a great charity that aims to make quality eyecare and glasses available to people in Africa who need them and hopefully help them to study, work and live a bit more easily. Working for Specsavers (and wearing glasses) I fully appreciate how important access to good eye care services is and see daily how correcting someone's vision can materially improve their life. I also see daily how easily we take these things for granted.

I am going to be running in the Great Ethiopian Run, a 10K race that is slightly more complicated than usual as it's held in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia which happens to sit at nearly 2400m above sea level (around 8000ft!) and it's unlikely I'll manage any training at altitude in advance so might be a bit tricky.

Hoping to raise a good bit of money, will be coming up with some fundraising ideas over the next few weeks so keep an eye on this page or on Facebook.

Many Thanks
