    Story

    Last year my wife and I lost our twin boys Joseph & Thomas who were born sleeping in January 2018. This past year has been the most challenging of our lives and along the way we’ve been supported by so many brilliant people. I’ve decided this year to run London Marathon in their memory and to raise funds for Lincoln Comfort Bags. When we lost the twins, we were supported by the wonderful hospital chaplain Pamela who gave our daughter Isla a comfort bag to help her understand and come to terms with what had happened to her brothers. The comfort bags are given to children who are visiting a seriously ill relative or dealing with a recent bereavement. The bags contain child friendly books about bereavement, arts & crafts and other items to remember their loved one. The bag really helped Isla come to terms with what was happening and gave Jemma and I some tools to help support her at a time when words failed us. Pamela and ULHT rely entirely on donations to keep providing the bags and doing this brilliant work.

      Today was my last long run before London Marathon - 21 miles done 💪 On the day that would be approaching the long stretch along the Embankment towards Westminster and the final 5.2 miles 😬 In case you hadn’t seen, I’m running the marathon for a cause that’s close to mine and Jemma’s hearts.
