2 Year old Tom had a heart transplant in Nov 15.

I am doing the Great North Run to raise funds for The Sick Children's Trust because they gave us a home for 11 months to be near Tom.

The Sick Children's Trust

We provide free high-quality accommodation to support families of children in hospital

Charity Registration No. 284416


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The Sick Children's Trust put us up in some amazing accommodation called Scott House, next to the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne, before and after Tom's heart transplant in Nov 2015.  We didn't have to pay a penny to stay there and Andrew and his team were so hospitable and treated us like one of their own. It's only right that we try and give something back to them now that Tom is making good progress at home so I am getting my trainers on again for the Geordie half marathon in September (The Great North Run).  Please dig deep for this great charity that provides home from home accommodation for the families of some of the sickest children in the UK with severe heart conditions.

You can view Tom's previous Justgiving page at while he was waiting for a heart transplant and we raised an amazing amount for CHUF.
