In the wake of the terribly sad news about Claire Squires dying during the London Marathon, I am yet again uplifted by the amazing people of this country
The outpouring of generosity to support Claire’s chosen charity – the Samaritans - currently up to £400k as I type – must just fill her parents and families heart with pure warmth in this incredibly sad time
So this post is dedicated to you crazy, amazing, inspiring, eccentric, brilliant people who call yourself British
I’m honoured to be British, I just love how we can come together after something dreadful and make it something hopeful and inspiring
If you haven’t given to Claire’s fund yet – here is the link – do something extraordinary today xx
Eddie Izzard – 43 marathons in 51 days!
David Walliams – 140 mile swim
A community comes together to clean up after the riots
Fallen Hero wall – moved back brick by brick
Phil Packer – two weeks to do the London marathon
John Bishop – Paris to London – via bike, feet and boat
Fabrice Muamba – the way the country stood together and willed him a speedy recovery – inspiring
So that right there are just few of the things that make this country “Great” Britain – it doesn’t happen by accident
Who would you add to the list?
