Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am race sailing around the world as part of the crew of Qingdao in the 2017/18 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. This is the adventure of a lifetime! I want to take this opportunity to support Helen & Douglas House hospice and the work they do with children + young people with life-shortening conditions and their families.

Douglas House provided much needed support to my son Harry during the last year of his life. Harry loved staying at Douglas House and for me it made an almost unbearable situation survivable. Sadly, Harry who had such a talent for life died at Douglas House in January 2012.

This is my opportunity to thank Helen & Douglas House for all the love and care they gave to Harry. As a charity they rely on voluntary donations and this is my way of helping them fund the cost of the hospice service. 

Please follow me on my blog wavingnotdrowningwithclipper.wordpress.com and thank you for supporting Helen & Douglas House.
