You should be proud of your dedication and hard work

COMMENT: The return of good weather shouldn’t bring dread

Have your say

I want to say a huge thank you to the dozens of people who have e-mailed me with ideas for which charity to raise cash for with my Great South Run efforts.

I have been overwhelmed – and moved to tears – by some of the great work some of you do for causes, charities and loved ones in the local area, as well as by the reasons others of you have given me for choosing your particular cause.

Needless to say a hard decision has been made much more difficult thanks to you. But I hope to have made up my mind by next week and I’ll announce it in my column then.

You should all be proud of yourselves. It’s your dedication and hard work that make us a fantastic community of people in this part of our county. You’ve humbled me.
