Weʼre raising £250 to donate to Ward 52 Children’s Neurosurgery at Leeds General Infirmary

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Story

I have not broadcast that my son has hydrocephalus which is a condition where the cerebral fluid in the skull and around the brain isn’t able to circulate properly, in his case because of a narrowing of a duct.

When he was five and a half months old he had two brain surgeries, one of which was to fit a shunt which remedies the condition.

During this stressful, worrying and heart wrenching time we were cared for by the fabulous, caring and selfless staff, Drs, Surgeons, Nurses, Cleaning staff, Porters, Catering Staff on Ward 52 Pediatric Neurosurgery at Leeds General Infirmary, they all looked after us. Not one of them did it for plaudits or presents they just wanted to help and look after us all.

Now I want to give something back to the ward so they can buy something to help the stay of other families and little ones that need it. It could be anything from something for the play room to fans to keep everyone cool when it’s too warm, basically whatever will help most.

So I’m running this years Great North Run on the 9th of September in a bid to raise money from sponsorship. The last time I ran it I was 4 years younger and hadn’t had a baby! The training this time around has definitely been tougher and I imagine the run will be to.

If you can spare a couple of pounds I would be very grateful.

    Thank you for all of your donations, i’m humbled you thought enough to support my cause and i’m sure the ward will be grateful. My knee held up pretty well my poor toes however 😬 I will never take them for granted again!

    Well I’m just about to bed down for the last sleep before the run. I needn’t have worried about the kid sleeping, he’s asleep in the middle of the bed, no travel cot for him!🤷🏼‍♀️ Knee feels ok. The test will be tomorrow! Thank you all for your donations so far I really do appreciate them all 😁

    The weekend is almost upon us! Only two more sleeps! I’ve a mixture of excitement and trepidation currently! One concern is my stupid knee 😬. I’ve had no pain in it for over a week but I’ve not run. The other is whether the kid will sleep in the travel cot 🤷🏼‍♀️ Well regardless of both I will be completing the run. Leanne (one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world) has been virtually and physically training with me and will be there on the day to drag me round! So thank you all for your donations it really means a lot 😀
