As you probably know, my husband Mike is running the London Marathon to raise money for World Horse Welfare. Someone yesterday told us they couldn't possibly sponsor him as it's "only for horses", not whilst there are "children dying in Africa".
It really, really annoys me when people make such statements without checking out the facts. This person clearly has no idea of what WHW actually does. Mike has blogged about this, far better than I could have, you can read his post here
