Story

WELCOME to our fundraising page.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and - hopefully - sponsor us.

You're obviously either keen or we've already pestered you so much you've given in. Either way, we're glad you're here.

For those of you who don't know us - we're Andrew McCreaddie, Katie McCreaddie and Andrew Moores.

This year we've decided to take part in the 13.1-mile Great North Run. (Yes - that's right - the half marathon in Newcastle. No - we're not completely bonkers!)

We're attempting to raise £1,000 for Bliss and the amazing work it does for babies who are born too soon.

This is a subject that means a lot to Andrew and Katie McCreaddie's family and it would mean a great deal if you could help out.

Also, Andrew McCreaddie himself was a premature baby - by eight weeks. (Yes - you heard right, he was premature. No - you wouldn't think it looking at him now!)

Back then (way back in November, 1979) the technology wasn't quite as good.

But the doctors and nurses at the Hedon Road Maternity Unit still managed to keep Andrew healthy and eventually send him home with his mum and dad.

That is something Bliss wants to achieve for more premature babies and their parents - and your sponsorship will help.

• £10 could provide telephone support for two distressed families
• £25 could buy a complete set of information booklets for parents
• £50 could fund a neonatal nurse on a Bliss study day

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure gift aid is reclaimed if possible.

So, it's quicker for you, we save time and it saves the charity money.

Everyone is a winner!

We'll post regular updates, pictures and video on this page, so keep coming back to find out more.

There will also be stories on http://www.knutsfordguardian.co.uk/

Remember to let your friends and family know about this page. Every donation helps us get closer to that target - which seems a long way off at the moment.

If you donate - remember to leave us your messages. At least one of us is going to need all the inspiration he can get to make it to the end of the course this year!
