    Dear Family, Friends and Neighbours

    In a little corner of Windermere is a small school with HUGE spirit. 'Goodly Dale Community Primary School' supports children of all abilities in all our inclement Lakeland Weather to achieve sporting success.

    The School has been fundraising for work to be done on an 'All Weather' sports pitch. Last year we saw mum Niki Moss swimming the length of Lake Windermere (12 miles) to raise £1400. This year she is joined by fellow mums Jenny Free and Gayle Lowe and local teacher Hilary Hennah in running the Brathay Marathon on Sunday 21st May, this is the hardest Road Marathon in England with over 1495ft of ascent in a route that takes the mums 26.2 miles around Lake Windermere.

    The mums are aiming to raise £1000. £800 of which is to go directly to the school for the children's sports facilities and £200 is to go to the charity 'Level Water' which brings swimming lessons and pool accessibility to children with special needs.

    We hope you can support this tremendous effort by sponsoring these mums and by spreading the word to friends and neighbours! These ladies are not athletes, they simply have a passion to support the wonderful staff, children and other parents at Goodly Dale by going that extra mile!

    Sponsorship can either be sent directly to the school (clearly marked for Brathay run fundraiser) or via this 'Crowd Funding' site.

    Thankyou for supporting a small school to dream big.

    HUGE thanks go to our families, Stuart Sports Bowness for endless supplies, encouragement and advice, Pete Blands for our awesome running shoes (worth every penny and came with amazing nutritional advice and help), The Climbers Shop Ambleside, Carly Harding Lakes Yoga, Piranhas Swim School, The Old England team for keeping training on track, Mayela Redoudo for massages that have kept the limbs moving and very importantly Andy Hallewell personal Trainer at Choices for really pushing us passed the pain barriers and keeping focussed!

      Well we did it!!!!!!!! Woop wooop!!!!! 5hrs 44mins! We are all desperately shattered and certainly not sure we will be signing up for more marathons in the near future but very happy with our non runner selves for cracking it! We had some tremendous support from lots of people along the way including a sneaky prosecco stop, some fantastic interviews with Lakeland radio and amazing friends and family cheering us on all the way round! Thankyou for your support - every penny really does make this worthwhile xxxxxx
