    I know by thanking everyone I am going to bump my post back to the top. £7 left before I hit my £50 target.

    The run is on Sunday and after a 5K tomorrow I should be sorted.

    So thanks everyone so far for their generousity. You have no idea how much it means. It's all going to a good place.

    Thanks both. Really appreciated.

    Anyone else reading this and watching Sport Relief? Donate to my run and give a little. Trust me you will feel good. I ht £50 so now help me raise £100.

    John Bishop just reduced me and Mrs E to tears. No family should ever have to worry like that. No child should have to worry about dying. Forget that packet of ciggies this week give the £5 to me.

    Have one less pint. Sponsor me £3.20 instead.

    Thanks all. After Sunday I will ask no more.

    Watching with my teenagers and all 3 with tears in our eyes early on with Billie Piper's film of the kids who'd lost a parent. Top up on way...

    Oh well - the day has come. Last call for sponsorship and then I'll shut up for a year. The Llanelli 10K is next so hopefully there I will be raising money for MacMillan or any other Cancer Relief.

    Has Edugeek got a preferred charity? Maybe it should choose one every year and if anyone raises money we give a little to that? Today's run has to go to Sport Relief but maybe next time I run in an organised race I will be able to choose where it goes.

    So on this Sunday morning whilst you are eating your bacon and sipping your coffee think of those who are not. Be they in the UK or abroad - we are lucky. Whilst you are out in your garden this afternoon tending to your lawn, painting your shed or playing with your kids think about those who cannot do that because they are bathing in a river of faeces.

    To show that I am not just taking your money I (and Mrs E and my son) too have sponsored myself £30. Watching the suffering on the BBC on Friday was just too much.

    Come on - can I make £200? Ony on £122 so far (which is more than my original £50 target).

    Best wishes everyone and thanks,

    Gareth
