Vicky's water project

Vicky Buchanan was a friend of a friend of mine. She was knocked off her bike and killed whilst cycling to work last October. She was 28.
icky and her fiance Adam had been due to marry in September. But now Adam has resolved that some good should come from the tragedy and so on September 30 Adam, plus a swarm of 200 friends and family - the majority of whom would have been wedding guests - will take part in the Great North Run half-marathon to raise funds for a unique memorial,
. The project was launched with the £10.88 she was carrying when she was killed but has targeted a figure of £226,000 to bring clean, running water to the inhabitants of a town in Ethiopia where Vicky had been working during her Masters degree.
The Daily Telegraph has just published this
about Vicky, her project, and her legion of friends and family who have put their trainers on to celebrate her life. If you would like to make a donation you can do so
