Old boy runs to help families

Alumnus Jamie Sherman (2002-2009) is hoping to raise thousands of pounds for charity by running the London Marathon in April.

Jamie, who is in his second year at Durham University studying Physics and Philosophy, is raising money for the Homestart charity. Homestart provides practical support for families who are experiencing difficulties, whether due to illness, financial hardship or isolation. The charity also supports families who face parenting challenges.

“I’m training five times a week to get myself ready for the big day,” says Jamie. “I’m aiming to raise £2,500 over the next few weeks, so please consider sponsoring me at www.virginmoneygiving.com/jamiesherman – I’d really appreciate any contribution at all.”
