Thank you for visiting my JustGiving Page 2016/2018 althought I have hit my target for 2016. The next project is 2018 .. I will be 60 in 2018 what better way as I know Les would have liked me to spend my birthday doing something worthwhile just seeing the smiles on childrens faces is the best present ever. If you’d like to make a donation to Josie's Dragonfly Trust I’d be very grateful, as it will help them grant "Dragonfly Dreams" and Cash Gifts to children and young people with cancer.. Thank you.

My story; First of all I want to start by thanking everyone who in the past and still is supporting me for my fundraising. As many of you know I've been fundraising for six years in memory of my husband Les, it was Les's wish for me to raise money and help children and give them a chance in their last days, months, years. We do not know until we suffer a loss as to how much it affects us and our lives and families.
A quote in a book written by a patient who Les met in hospital in 2009. People come and go out of our lives, that appears to be the way of our journey through life...what John had said about les in his book , I couldn't have asked for more at that moment in time, entering a a whole new world I was given my own personal tour guide . Even though les was so ill and we had been given the devastating news that there was no cure and his cancer was terminal . Yet les gave comfort , support and tried to allay any fears John had over his forthcoming chemotherapy .
I have gained so much strenght myself from helping raise money for charity.
I had the opportunity to support this amazing charity and with your support raised just under £ 13k . I have decided to sign up and work for the charity again in 2016 . I have achieved an Allendale Challenge, completed my first Great North Run in 2014 , sadly I am not able to compete this year due to a fall at work in the RVI. I have damaged my hip so not able to run. I know my Gentle Giant will be with me and supporting every step of the way.
Below is what Josie's Dragonfly does :
The Dragonfly Project raises funds for Josie’s Dragonfly Trust to help brighten the lives of children and young people living with cancer . The Trust grants Cash Gifts and Dragonfly Dreams which help young people receiving palliative care to create special memories with loved ones when time is precious. Money may go towards allowing them to do or own something they have always wanted buy gifts to leave behind for younger siblings , or simply have some fun with family and friends The difference that these gifts can make to these individuals and their families is immeasurable , and donations are hugely important in helping the work of the Trust to continue.
So please if you would like to support me and Josie's Dragonfly you can by either sponsoring on line or by text this is a free to text and the only cost is the cost of the donation . LESD63 £... 70070 or via my justgiving page Georgina Dunn in memory of Les Dunn
