Hi everyone!
It's that time of year again when I pester you for money. We did really well last year and raised lots of money but this year I am punishing myself even more and need you guys to dig deep.

Many of you will already know my reasons for wanting to raise money for the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, but for those who don't here it is. Back in 2013 my son, Alex, was diagnosed with leukaemia and if it wasn't for the tireless efforts of the doctors and nurses at the Manchester Children's Hospital, he wouldn't be here today. We spent weeks at a time on Ward 84 and witnessed, first hand, what a difference charitable donations make from; new toys, personalised gifts special trips, Easter eggs, Christmas presents & so on, the list goes on. Alex was just one boy on one ward, there are 18 wards and the hospital sees nearly 200,000 patients each year so please help make every child's stay a little easier.

Please donate what you can.

Thank you!
