To raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society, 61-year-old Iain Dempster will run the London Marathon dressed as a Victorian gentleman and reading aloud from the works of Dickens.
We haven't given out a Dickensblog Order of Merit in a while, but if Mr. Dempster doesn't deserve one, I don't know who does. Consider it bestowed. And on a more practial note, if you want to sponsor him in the marathon, you can do so at this link.
(Speaking of fundraising, watch this site for a new opportunity in the Dickensblog Charity Fundraiser, coming in the next few days!)
