Derbyshire Children's Holiday Centre

DCHC gives 660 residential holidays a year to children from Derby and Derbyshire having difficulty in daily life. Nominated children come from homes where the impact of financial hardship, deprivation or abuse has created a situation where stress is common and there are few comforts.

Charity Registration No. 218063

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My 18-week training programme will involve running over 400 miles - the total distance from my home, to the Derbyshire Children's Holiday Centre in Skegness, to London for the marathon and then back to Derby!

I am proud to run my first London Marathon on behalf of the Derbyshire Children's Holiday Centre, who provide 660 residential holidays to children from the county at their holiday home in Skegness - providing a respite for parents, carers and guardians and developing social and personal skills and making new friends. 

This is an opportunity to support a fantastic local charity and give the children of Derby and Derbyshire a break.

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.
