Story

Hi everyone!

So this September I will be running my first half marathon. As much as I love my sports, I've never run further than 12km, so this won't be easy! To keep me going through the slog of running and all the blisters, I want to use this opportunity to raise money for a community of people who are close to my heart.

Mother’s Heart House was founded by Tante Ine in July 2003 in a small town in Bali, Indonesia. After living in the UK for a number of years, she moved back to her home country with a dream to help disadvantaged, unwanted children. The first child, Baby P, arrived on her doorstep, very malnourished and sick. The young mother had ended up as a prostitute to make ends meet but decided to give the baby up. Tante Ine took Baby P in, and soon word spread that there was a safe house for children with Tante Ine. Baby P was quickly followed by 2-month old Baby K. She gave them a loving home, a safe environment, access to an education, clothes on their backs and food in their bellies. Now Tante Ine is mum to 12 children ranging from 1-16 years old, and they are thriving. So much so that they need to build a new house for them all!

Having spent part of my childhood in Bali, I have had the pleasure of visiting Tante Ine with my family, and we were blessed to work with her, her children and the local slum communities to help make a positive change in their lives.

This is a big opportunity for me to give back to a mother who has given so much to my family, her community and her children. Any donation, whether £1 or £10, will go towards the building of a new home for Mother’s Heart House. No donation is too small!

Thank you so much :)
