Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Beads of Courage, brought to the UK by Be Child Cancer Aware, means children who are receiving cancer treatment at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, where I work, can collect morale-boosting beads for every bit of their treatment - a bead for every night's stay in hospital, a bead for every scan, every thumb prick, every dose of chemo...  They collect an astonishing visual history of their treatment journey. 

I know there are many calls on your money, but please consider donating something to this cause, as I've seen for myself what a positive boost it provides to children undergoing a really arduous process.

Thank you so much

Did it! Many thanks to my long-suffering partner, who nobly got up at 7am to give me a lift to Tatton Park - and then brought the boys back to see me finish! What a great feeling to help such a great cause AND put my stamina to the test. Now what next...?

Well, it's the night before. The nerves are starting... Let's hope Cheshire really is gently undulating, as we were taught in 'O' level Geography!

Training going well - 19 miles up and down the Fallowfield loop today, in a bit of every kind of weather bar snow!
