I will be taking on the Challenge Henley Half Ironman. I have never done a triathalon before and the personal, physical and mental challenge of training for and completing the event has and will be hard to manage.

It has been a few years since I have raised money for Helen and Douglas House and in that time they have developed and enhanced the care and provision they provide for their young residents. It costs £5 million a year to run and provides support and care for over 300 families as well as those families who have suffered a loss. The majority of this money comes from voluntary sources. Please be a part of the great service they provide, help support those families who need it.


Helen and Douglas House 

Helen & Douglas House has the time and expertise to care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions and support their families. The two hospice houses offer specialist symptom and pain management, medically-supported short breaks and end-of-life care, as well as counselling and practical support for the whole family.


Helen House opened in 1982 as the world's first children's hospice. Douglas House opened in 2004 specifically for young adults aged 16-35.
