Sponsor 10k run for Paul Wills memorial bench

Hi, my name is David Sharpe and I am running the Lincoln 10k (UK) on 31st October 2021 in memory of Paul Wills.

Paul tragically died on 17th May 2021, aged only 48 years.

The money raised will go towards a memorial bench where friends, colleagues and family can go to sit and remember him.

Paul was an active in fighting inequality and ensuring diversity, at the forefront of a number of local and national initiatives. Loved by his family, and deeply valued and respected by friends and colleagues.

The bench is of the anti vandal type and in excess of £800, or £1150 for the top of the range, and should we be luck enough to raise in excess of the target we aim to buy two trees (an English oak and a Czech Lime) to be planted in his memory.

Anything beyond this will be used to help the charity https://www.gamblingwithlives.org/

Please, please help us by sponsoring Dave in the 10k to raise money for Paul's memorial.
