Tom Porter’s half marathon

I’m taking part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 14th October to raise money for The Brokerage, a charity that helps young people to achieve their career potential by providing experience of work, employability skills and jobs in financial, professional and related services.

According to my wife and mother it’s time I turned fatness into fitness, and this seems like a very good cause to raise money for!

My fundraising target is £500, so any donation you can give will be greatly appreciated.


  • The team at The Brokerage have put together a very well thought out programme. They have even asked students to trial their content and have taken our thoughts into their consideration. All the modules will be really helpful to me because they target exactly what I am not sure about such as how to write a good CV and cover letter, and how to use LinkedIn most effectively. I think this has been a very beneficial opportunity to me; I can’t wait to start the programme!
