    Story

    Hay y'all, we're not counting our chickens on completing this challenge in less than two hours but we are going to give it our best shot. Although we are not outstanding in this field, we are running a half marathon in Chepstow, on August 27th 2017.
    We have decided to split any money raised between two chosen charities, as a way of remembering two greatly missed people in our lives.
    Firstly, The Nathan Tomkins Trust. Nathan was a cherished member of Upton Young Farmers and a loved friend. He sadly took his own life on Christmas eve, 2016. As his legacy, this trust has been created in order to raise support and awareness of mental health issues in the local community through an array of sporting and social events.
    Secondly, The British Heart Foundation. In February 2017 my (Poppy's) dad, Alex Burgess, sadly and unexpectedly passed away from cardiac arrest. He was a happy, well respected and loved member of the farming community and his passing has had a devastating impact on us all. The British Heart Foundation are the biggest independent funder of cardiovascular research in the UK and are fighting to prevent and raise awareness of heart related issues.
    This will definitely be a challenge for us country gals whose daily exercise involves running away from angry cattle, acting as the farm sheep dog and stumbling home from the pub after a night with the young farmers.
    We would greatly appreciate any donation, no matter how small, to keep us motivated to carry on moooving to reach the finish line.

    Much love and many thanks,
    Poppy, Alex and Georgia

      Final Update: Half Marathon has been completed, cheques have been written and an amazing £2,185 has been raised for our two charities - The British Heart Foundation and The Nathan Tomkins Trust... We would like to say a huge thank you to anyone who has supported us, we are humbled by your generosity. We are thinking of possibly doing a full marathon in a few years to raise even more money for these two special charities as a way of remembering both Dad and Nathan. Thanks again, Poppy Alex and Georgia x

      We finally did it!! It was a pretty painful 13.1 miles in 27 degree heat but 100% worth it! Thinking of all our amazing supporters and kind donations gave us the motivation to keep going. We knew our two angels were running every step along with us which made crossing the finish line all the more special. We want to thank everyone who has supported us, we feel very grateful to be surrounded by such lovely people who have donated so generously, allowing us to smash our original goal of £1,500!
