Thank you so much for supporting my fundraising. 

My gran would have turned 90 on 28th March 2022. Sadly, she was diagnosed with Gallbladder Cancer in November 2021. She was able to remain comfortable in her own home with family around her before passing away peacefully on Boxing Day. We had the help and support 24/7 to allow this to happen.  My Gran was the most amazing lady, I can’t put into words how special she was. She was my best friend, always there no matter what. I hope to raise money in her memory for this incredible cause, to allow others to have the same sort of the support that we appreciated and needed so much. 

I will be doing 9 events including runs/duathlons/triathlons during 2022. The longest being the Keswick 50km ultramarathon, and my favourite being the Great North Run. This will be the first time I have attempted either a duathlon or a triathlon. Any donations, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated. 

I will also be organising a fundraiser on 21st August at Swalwell Cricket Club from 2pm, all proceeds go to Macmillan. We will have a bouncy castle, face painting, BBQ, raffle, tombola, games, live music, and even Bonkers Bingo. Please get in touch for more information or to purchase tickets.
