Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I am running the 2012 Virgin London Marathon for the Stroke Association in recognition of my grandmother Lynne, a stroke survivor.
Please visit my website to find out about my fundraising activities www.clairejjones.co.uk. My latest event is a charity walk.
Lynne suffered a serious stroke in 2010, and is still learning to live with its consequences. She was one of the lucky ones, she got treatment within 3 hours, thanks to the FAST campaign which my aunt Gill had remembered when she found her, otherwise who knows whether she would still be with us.
The Stroke Association work tirelessly to raise awareness of how to prevent strokes, as well as how to recognise them and seek help quickly when they happen, and how to support victims and survivors and their families in the aftermath.
Anyone can have a stroke, no matter what age.
Please help me to raise money for them to continue their invaluable work by supporting my fundraising activities or making a donation on this page. You can find more information here: www.clairejjones.co.uk
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Thank you so much!!!!
Here's a rather amusing boost to my efforts by the VLM team! Don't get too excited, we all got one, but it's a really nice touch!
