Fund-raising by Colin MacBean

Colin is wonderfully active in raising funds for Ghana School Aid.  He has a page on JustGiving, on which he writes:”A couple of years ago I ran my first 10k to raise money for Ghana School Aid in memory of my Dad who was a district education officer in Ghana in the 1950s.  People were incredibly generous and I raised over £900. // At New Year this year a friend challenged me to race him in the Edinburgh Half Marathon this year.  As I’d had a few drinks this seemed like a great idea, although I am older, slower and less fit than I was when I did the 10k.. // When I sobered up I t hought I should make the best of this and try to make the training worth while by raising some money for GSA.  They are a small charity so your donations can make a real difference.  Over the next 5 months I’ll be posting updates and photos of how I am getting on JustGiving and on Facebook. // Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. […] Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, so it’s the most efficient way to donate […]”.

We at GSA wish Colin all the very best with his training and his run.  We are seriously short of funds at the moment, so please, everyone, do your very best to help us by supporting Colin’s wonderful efforts!  Thanks so much.
