Alex Baker I'll be running the St Albans Half Marathon on Sunday 10th June. It'll be my first time trying to complete a half marathon, so I will just be glad to finish but I'm aiming to raise as much money for The Living Room as possible at the same time.

The Living Room provides counselling and support for people dealing with addiction. They were instrumental in helping my dad get sober before he passed away last year. The Living Room continued to provide support after his cancer diagnosis and helped him to remain sober during those difficult final weeks. I hope that through my fundraising, other families will benefit from the work and the support provided by The Living Room.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Donations and fundraising make up a big part of The Living Room's funding, so any money that you are able to donate will be greatly appreciated.
