Event: Great North Run 2023, on 10 September 2023
We support Bradford District Care NHS FT to benefit service users, carers and staff.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As a Chester based person, it might seem strange to be fundraising for a Bradford based charity but here is why....

I lived and worked in West Yorkshire for almost 10 years and I know the level of need and amazing work that goes on in the area. My dear friend Helen is the Fundraising Manager for Better Lives. Better Lives is the official charity for the Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust. BDCFT are the provider of mental health, community and learning disabilities services across communities. Supporting those with mental health difficulties is one of my passions in life and I know how committed, dedicated and talented Helen is in making things happen for people in need! If it wasn't for Helen and her encouragement, I probably wouldn't be running the Great North Run this year as I have been plagued by injury for the last couple of years. But here I am, training to run the Great North Run 2023, so it only felt right to show her my love and support by raising money for a charity that means so much to her. 

I know that times are tough for so many people. Please donate whatever you feel you can but if you can't donate then please share in case someone you know might want to.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you :)
