Story

My name is Katy Ratcliffe, I am now 14, and I want to help make a similar impact on someones life, of which the Willow Foundation had on mine and my family's.

What do they do?

Throughout 2013, I would like to raise £1000 for the Willow Foundation. This charity organises special days for seriously ill 16-40 year olds and their families. The charity has made a huge impact on many lives in the past, I would love to help in return for what the Willow Foundation have done for me.

How did they help me?

 The Willow foundation provided a short holiday for my family and me during mum's illness. This gave me the opportunity to spend some precious time with mum before she passed away in February 2009.

 My aim is to raise more than £1000 over the year, so that this charity can arrange more life enhancing special days. For more information, go to http://www.willowfoundation.org.uk

 Please donate what you can afford- anything is appreciated. Thank you so much!

Okay... so slight change of plan :) Instead of going on one big walk and passing over a couple of quite big mountains, I have decided to go on lots of day walks and go over lots of big mountains. I intend to climb 52 of England's highest mountains. 52 peaks in 52 weeks!
