If you didn’t manage to hear Tom Greaves on BBC Three Counties Radio yesterday morning, the programme remains on SOUNDS on the BBC website. Search for the Andy Collins show and his interview with Tom begins at 1 hour 39 minutes and 32 seconds from the start of the programme.

Two Reed cricketers have entered the London Marathon which this year will take place on 28th April. Please take the time to read about their chosen causes and give generously. To do so, you will have to copy & paste their respective charity links into your browser. Thank you, PGB, Hon. Sec, Reed CC. ================================================================================= Tom Greaves’s story. Hi All, As many of you will know, I’m not much of an athlete, however, in a moment of madness I applied for the London marathon and much to my surprise I got in!! This will be a hell of a challenge for me, as previously the most I’ve run in any one single effort is about a mile. So to make my efforts worthwhile I’ve decided to run for the Matt Hampson Foundation charity. As an emerging talent in the world of rugby, Matt Hampson’s world was rocked by a serious spinal injury sustained while training with England U21s.The shock would last months, the impact forever. Paralysed from the neck down Matt faced the toughest challenge of his life. Drawing on the passion, grit and steely determination that defined him as a player, Matt saw his accident not as an end, but as a new beginning. Through the Matt Hampson Foundation, Matt offers hope and inspiration to young people with similar injuries, sharing his experiences and devoting his life to raising vital funds for those in need of support. Please join me in supporting the Foundation by giving anything you can. Thank you, Tom. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=TomGreaves4&pageUrl=1 ================================================================================= Matt Giblin’s story. I've wanted to run a marathon for a few years now, and seeing as it might be something I'll only ever do once, I was really keen [...]
