Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Most of you know I like a challenge and this is a biggy. I have to raise £2500.00 for Acorns Childrens Hospice. I have a gold bond guaranteed place for the 2013 London Marathon.

Why Me, why Acorns - Well what a lot of you don't know is that in 1989 I was lucky enough to have a second child (well my wife was) unfortunately she only lived for 3 weeks. Heather and her family would have benefitted greatly from the services of a Hospice. There were NO hospices for Children specifically. Although everyone concerned was helpful we were in the way in Hospital and unsupported at home - not a nice situation to be in.

The work of the Acorns hospices is essential and  this sort of fundraising is essential.

PLEASE give generously. (Using Gift Aid if you can)

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.

So please dig deep and donate now.
