Next Sunday I am going to run the London Marathon to raise money for Treehouse: an educational charity for children with autism that is very close to
my heart.

Autism is a condition which my cousin James and hundreds of thousands of other people in the UK suffer from. It impairs their ability to communicate
and relate to the world in general. When James was very young, his parents (my uncle and aunt) and 3 other sets of parents set up Treehouse as a
specialist school for children with autism, as there was really nowhere else suitable around at the time. Since then, Treehouse has grown from a
school with 4 pupils, into a school with almost 100. Treehouse has also become a national autism charity, undertaking policy and parliamentary work
and research to ensure autism is a national priority. The charity supports parents to campaign locally and offers training and consultancy on autism

Treehouse provides children with an education that is vitally important to them and their families. It gives people with autism from all over the UK
the chance to lead a better, more independent and more fulfilling life.

Please help me to raise money for this most worthy cause by visiting my sponsorship page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/alexandertelford

Thank you for all your support! It really means a lot to me,
