When the sad news that London marathon runner Claire Squires had collapsed so close to the finish line hit the news my own bank account was (again) lacking funds. I’m making up for that now, just donated £20 via her Claire Squires Just Giving page which is still active. You should donate something as well if you’re not one of over eighty thousand people world wide that have donated to her Just Giving page already.
Even better news is that Just Giving have waived their usual 8% fee on donations to the Claire Squires page. Quite right too, she gave her life doing something she loved. This was her second London marathon for charity, supporting The Samaritans after her younger brother had died of a drug overdose. My heart goes out to her Mother who had supported and volunteered for The Samaritans for 20 years.
