Alan Phillips, nephew to John Phillips, President of the OEA until his death in 2012, will be running in the Virgin London Marathon in 2014 in John's memory. Alan writes as follows:
"John's death has affected my family a great deal and I wanted to run and raise money for MIND. I chose this charity not only to learn more about the symptoms of mental illness but also to help other people/families that have been or will be affected by it in the future. Please could you circulate the link (below) to my fundraising page to all of the Old Edwardians that visit your page? Anything donated will be greatly appreciated, by me, by MIND and all the people and families they support. In addition to this I will be auctioning off the rugby shirts illustrated below to raise extra sponsorship. If any of the Old Edwardians are interested please let me know and I will kindly let them know the details of the auction.
