The finish line is in sight, but I still need your donations

Child refugees: more cash is needed from the government

COMMENT: Government needs to dig deep to find extra cash

Have your say

I know I might be starting to sound like a stuck record, but I promise I’ll soon shut up.

It’s the Great South Run on Sunday and I’ve been levering myself out of bed before the first cockerel crows to pack in the training.

It’s the last of three races I’m doing in aid of The Rowans Hospice – a hospice which gets no money from the government to pay for its £4.8m a year running costs.

The hospice cares predominantly for people whose cancer has progressed beyond medical intervention and who need more palliative care.

The people who work there give dignity and respect to the people who need it the most, and they are aces.

Even if you think my challenge is a walk in the park, please donate at
