Running for Makaton

Michael dressed as Mr Tumble
If you are able to make a donation, whatever the amount, to The Makaton Charity, please visit my Just Giving page to donate now!

On 26th April 2015, I will be running the London Marathon dressed as Mr Tumble to raise funds for The Makaton Charity. The target is to raise £26,200 and I will need a lot of help to make it.

Together, we can help more people to access Makaton and overcome communication difficulties.

The Makaton Charity are determined to help more children and adults get access to Makaton to overcome their communication difficulties. These funds will help us do that.

There are a number of ways you can help:

  • You can sponsor me – every penny counts toward reaching the target so that we can help as many people as possible:

  • Help spread the word! Please share this request with your friends, family, colleagues and contacts. You can do this by sharing my blog, liking Facebook posts or retweeting tweets that The Makaton Charity are sharing.

  • Organise a fundraising event – why not have a cake sale, a supper or a raffle to help promote awareness of Makaton, have fun and raise some funds too!
