On Friday 20 February 2015 I am taking part in my first Olympic distance triathlon in Abu Dhabi. The event consists of 1500m of open water swimming in the Yas Marina adjacent to Abu Dhabi's Formula 1 circuit followed by 40km of cycling around the race track and finishing with a 10km run!
I've been training hard and now need your help in order to give children a chance of a better life. While visiting Mumbai in India on a work trip I was moved by the plight of the many street children who struggle to live without shelter, food, healthcare or education.
An organisation exists in Mumbai to help support these children called the Vatsalya Foundation and it would be great if you could make a donation. You can find out more about the good work being carried out by the foundation by visiting
I'll let you know how I get on in the triathlon!
Thanks for your help and support.
