Photo 23-05-2013 21 01 21 I will be taking part in the 2013 Potters Arf Marathon on June 9th this year, in aid of Autism Aware UK. Those that know me, will know Im not a runner at heart but thought this would be a great challenge and a fantastic way of raising money for the charity. The run starts from Hanley Town Centre from 10.30am, so feel free to come along on the day to give me a little shout of encouragement (I “may” need it!)

This is going to be a tough one for me so I hope you all dig deep & make it worth the pain!!

IMG_1906Hello My name is Amber, and I’m the niece of Kim and Jon Southall who run Autism Aware UK. Therefore this  charity is very close to my heart and I always try my best to help out and fund raise as much money as possible.

I’m going to be doing a challenge where I’m going to be wearing my Pj’s for 3 days on the 3,4,5 august 2013.

During this time I’m going to be going out into the general public. I’m hoping to get a few other involved with this because every penny counts. Last year I did a sponsored silence so this year it’s time for something a little bit different.
