In the first half of next year I will be running 2 half marathons, to raise money for Chem Chem Nursery (children aged 2-6) in Moshi, Tanzania, where I volunteered over the summer.

The Nursery is in one of the poorest areas of Moshi, yet the children were some of the brightest and loveliest I have ever met.  The teacher was put on this earth to teach - she is so passionate and loves the children like they're her own.  But they really need some help!

Most of the children don't get fed before they come to school, which means by 11am, they are really lacking energy and the teacher often has to finish class early.  It would cost around £170 to buy all of the cooking equipment, bowls and spoons, and enough ingredients to feed all the children porridge everyday for 12 months!  

The teacher has had no training, and this would really benefit both her and the children.  Already, some of the two year olds can write, and all of the children speak pretty good English.  Just imagine how brilliant they could all be with a qualified teacher!

I will be running the Richmond half marathon on 23rd March and then the Chester Half Marathon in May.  Anything you can donate would be hugely appreciated, and will go towards giving these children nourishment and a better education.
