Story

Around 9 years ago our (mine and Jo's) son Finlay was taken ill with severe complications after a bout of chicken pox. These were many, and we were given a 50-50 likelihood of him surviving.

Through early detection from our local GP,St Johns Hospital (which sadly no longer exists) and eventually Great Ormond Streets expert care, Finlay managed to pull through the ordeal, and is now a healthy little boy enjoying life as he should.

To give something back to Great Ormond Street, myself and Will are attempting to set a world record playing Real Tennis at Prested Hall on May 10th/11th together as a doubles pair against as many opponents as humanly possible.  We are aiming for 26 matches consecutively, which should take a minimum of 24 hours, and we are hoping to raise a significant amount of cash in the process.

We hope you can help...
