On April 22nd 2012 I am aiming to become the fastest human in history to complete 26.2 miles dressed as a dairy product at the London marathon. I have had my record attempt application accepted by Guinness World Records and am now gearing up for the big day. The time to beat is 3 hours 55 minutes.
I am being supported by Mackie's of Scotland and I will be running as a tub of their luxury dairy ice cream.
EVERY PERSON THAT DONATES WILL BE ENTERED INTO A DRAW TO WIN A YEAR'S SUPPLY OF ICE CREAM PROVIDED BY THOSE KIND PEOPLE AT MACKIE'S. 52 TUBS, ONE FOR EVERY WEEK OF THE YEAR!
As part of my record attempt I am also hoping to raise £2,000 for Oxfam. Having personally travelled in some poverty stricken countries I think the sort of work Oxfam do is jolly worthwhile. I hope you do too. To learn more about what they do head here.
I would really appreciate your support for my world record attempt and my Oxfam fundraising target by making a donation on this page however small.
This is Chris who I made the tub for ...if you would like to sponsor him visit his page
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
I have been a Textile artist all my life but only been trying to make a living from it since I was made redundant from my teaching job last year. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
