Working at Family Fund every day I read stories and messages that show what a difference our grants and services make to families raising disabled or seriously ill children all across the UK, which is why I'm trying to give our funding a little boost by running the Great North Run and the Yorkshire Marathon this year.

As a sleep-deprived, rapidly ageing man, I'm not promising fast times, but I will get round! Anything you can spare to boost the coffers is much appreciated!
