Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

After my father passed away on my daughter’s birthday I found it very difficult to come to terms with the loss and wanted to channel that negative energy into something positive. I have decided to complete a 12 hour walkathon. I have started training and already racked up over 80km. In my first week.

I reached out to the Hospice as I wanted to personalise the fund raising and to see what specific items they might need and how much I might need to raise. 

I found out that a support worker who supports families after their relative passes away, just for 1 day, costs as much as £250/day. On hearing this I was so motivated to help other poor families who find themselves in the same boat. 

I have set a target of raising enough for 2 weeks of support which is a total of £3500.

Please anything that could help would be amazing
