Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This lockdown due to the Coronavirus is affecting many people, businesses, institutions and charities.

The lockdown is greatly affecting Derian House Children's Hospice, as many local young children with life-limiting conditions rely on going there for paliative care and respite.

Inaddition, many of Derian's charity events have had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak, which is losing them a siginifcant amount of money that goes into making Derian what it is, and keeping it running for the children that need it so much.

As such, I plan to use my 1hr exercise a day to run 5 miles every day until the end of the UK lockdown to try and raise money for Derian.

I know times are hard at the minute (financially as well as mentally), but if you could give ANYTHING, it would be greatly appreciated.

I will strive to update my page with evidence that I have done it every day with screenshots from my Strava maps!
