• Charlie is running the Wilmslow Half Marathon on April 3rd to raise much needed money for the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People charity and would be very grateful for any sponsorship through his Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/Charlie-Sale.

    This is what he says:

    Through my work I've been privileged enough to be asked to help a number of hearing dogs by the wonderful team responsible for their health. Through this I've met some amazing dogs and their recipients. I've watched them go through their paces in training and seen just how much they transform the lives of the people they form life partnerships with.

    I've done a little running (up to 5k 1-3 times a fortnight on average) just to keep fit over the last few years. No organised runs though! My last competitive run was at school and it was compulsory! I decided to enter a loger race as a challenge to myself but decided also to try to raise money for the fabulous HDFDP.
