I have been associated with L’Arche for several years now. Initial awareness came through reading Henri Nouwen’s books and my mother-in-law’s participation in Kent.

More recently I have enjoyed closer involvement in Manchester, chiefly through sponsored runs as part of “Team L’Arche”. It is a privilege to be associated with L’Arche, which is a wonderful charity with splendid values and inspirational people.

Last year Jean Vanier, the founder of L’Arche, died aged 90. It would be a fitting tribute to his vision and sacrificial life if - in this year in particular - “team L’Arche” were able to raise a substantial sum to expand the network of communities he established in 1964.

I do hope that this year you too will become a L’Arche stakeholder by sponsoring what (I promise!) will be my last marathon.

Thank you very much in anticipation.
