My name is Willy Hudson and I'm an actor, writer and theatre maker from Devon. I'm running the Exeter 10k to raise money to help get me to Drama school! oioi

I've got an amazing opportunity to study acting at The Oxford School of Drama on their One Year Level 5 course, starting September this year. The school has been recognised by the ‘BBC’ and ‘Acting in London’ as one of the top five acting schools in the world. To be given one of fifteen places on this course is sick and I'm chuffed to bits. Its an incredible opportunity for me to follow my passion of performance and get trained up!

BUT it costs a lot of cash. With course fees and then accommodation/living I estimate it adding up to around £28000. Boo. I'll get around £7500 from a student loan, the rest will have to be earned/begged/raised by me.

So I'm running this 10k race in Exeter on 20th July and asking YOU if you would be able to sponsor me. Pleeeaase!(I'm the last person that would sign up to do this, I got a D in PE at high school and have steered clear of any strenuous exercise since then.)

25% of what I raise will be donated to Share Communtiy, a charity that I have worked with in London over the past few years.

"Share, based in Wandsworth, works with disabled people who need extra help and support in order to achieve their potential and realise their dreams and aspirations. Share’s aim is to transform disabled people’s lives so that they live more independently and make choices about all aspects of their lives." -

In the past few years I have volunteered with them as a 'Social Buddy', accompanying those that Share supports on trips around the city. From Buckingham Palace, Warhorse and a Frozen sing-a-long - its been a right laugh and I've enjoyed every minute! It will be great to support this fantastic project and everything else that goes on at Share.

Please donate whatever you can! Anything big or small will really help and will be massively appreciated!!

There are some 'rewards' to the left, to thank you for donating. (I'm a good knitter btw)
