    Default Alice Ruggles - Fundraising

    On 15th October I will be running the Leicester Half Marathon whilst wearing Leon Paul Apex Fencing Kit, kindly donated by Alex and Ben at Leon Paul. This is to raise funds in memory of Alice Ruggles

    As a reminder, Alice Ruggles was a young epeeist from Leicester who was living in Gateshead when she was cruelly murdered by a former boyfriend who had been stalking her. See this link for the details.

    After the run, the kit will be raffled for the charity.

    I would be very greatful if you could donate to this cause via my BT mydonate page. Even just a couple of pounds would be greatly appreciated. It's gonna be a hot run!!

    Please also support the Epee individual and Team competitions organised by friends of Alice.

    Thank you to the two amazingly generous people who have donated 50 anonymously and to the others who have donated other amounts to this fantastic cause. I will run with a spring in my step knowing that I have your backing.

    Just to let anyone interested know, I completed the Leicester Half wearing Leon Paul Apex Kit in at time of 2:17:50.

    The kit was really comfortable and, despite it being unseasonably warm at 16 degrees, I was not too hot.

    Thus far I have raised, including giftaid 485. Well in excess of my target.

    This money will go to the Suzy Lamplugh Trust national stalking helpline in memory of Alice. A charity supported by the Alice Ruggles Trust.
