Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In February 2019 my beautiful daughter Eryn was born, Eryn was born with Down's Syndrome, and I wouldn't change her for anything. She is the most special girl, and she has been given so much help through and I now want to raise money to help the Down's Syndrome Association. I will be running the CHESTER MARATHON in October 2022 and I have already started my training and I am looking to raise £1,500 as a minimum for this amazing charity.


Eryn, as are all children with this amazing extra chromosome is the focal point of our whole family, very clever, knows what and how to get things, but so gentle and so adorable to all around her.
Mollie, Eryn’s wonderful mother and I knew nothing before she was born of Down Syndrome, and we are so proud and glad to have her in our lives. Mollie went through a hard time and the nurses and Doctors at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd were amazing during birth and the SCABU unit for the next 6-weeks whilst both Eryn and Mum recovered were nothing short of ……words can’t describe 😊


Here is a statistic that should make everyone who knows me and who does not, dig a little to support my venture – 96% of parent that are told before birth that their child will be Down Syndrome decide to abort! Imagine not having Eryn here, having that beaming smile from morning till night, so please give as little or as lot as you can to help me make my venture worthwhile and the association to raise money and awareness for future treatment and care etc.


And anyone in the Colwyn Bay are who wants a run, please contact me as I am well behind schedule and could do with a push on this 😊 I will do it though
