Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Following on from last year, our challenge for this year is to run 2018 kilometres for the year 2018 raising funds for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. This equates to 1254 miles via virtual runs by taking part in 5k, 10k and half marathons or whatever gets thrown at us. The route we shall be taking is 'London to Sofia in Bulgaria' helping to raise much needed funds for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.
Bluebell Wood have to raise a massive 90% of funds to keep their Charity going with only 10% provided by the Government each year. It costs over £4 million a year to keep the Hospice open.
Currently they are supporting over 250 families from across the region in both their Hospice and the Community, and are one of only 53 Children's Hospices in the Country.
Offering care and support to parents and their children with a shortened life expectancy they give families the gift of time with their children to create unforgettable memories.
As part of their care they offer short breaks, end of life treatment and care, emergency admission, counselling, home visits and activity therapy sessions. These are just a few of the wide ranging care services they provide.
Through your sponsorship we are helping them to provide the much needed help and support which families need during the hardest times they will ever have to face.

After visiting the Hospice on many occasions we have had the opportunity to see what a truly amazing job they all do and how they rely so much on all the help and support from people like ourselves and you.
If you would like to follow us on our journey there'll be regular updates on our blog on our Facebook page and this site (you can find us on facebook by searching for Al Nic Jo).
