So I ran the Eastbourne Half Marathon in 2011 and did not enjoy it one bit. A poor training programme was to blame due to suffering with a bad back but 5 years on, and with help of my physio, my back is fine and my training has been regimented to say the least for the last 3 months!
Chestnut Tree House came to my attention as we carry out electrical works in their charity shops. Subsequently I found out they've been providing 24/7 respite care over the last 14 years for a friends daughter and it seemed wrong for my company to take money from the charity and not give them something back. So I've been putting in the hours at the gym early morning and over the South Downs at the weekend to make sure I'm race fit.
Chestnut Tree House provides specialist palliative care to children and young people with life-shortening illnesses across Sussex and South West Hampshire supporting the whole family with care services as a hospice and also in the families home. Care costs exceed £3 million annually so all support is greatly received.
Any support is greatly appreciated,
