As you may have (ahem) notice, this year marks the centenary of the first women winning the vote. It also happens to be my half centenary and I wanted to mark it by fundraising for a cause very close to my heart.

To fundraise, I will be walking 50 miles along the Thames Path over the May Day Bank Holiday and then doing the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October.

Fawcett works tirelessly to keep women's rights high on the agenda even in the darkest days. I don't need to tell you that their work is not yet done, and they have forever been strapped for cash. So please do donate to mark this important year - for us all!
