2018 the NHS’s 70th Birthday year, it’s pretty amazing to think it’s been going since 1948. Establishing the NHS was a hugely ambitious plan that’s stood the test of time ensuring everyone has access to good healthcare. Ensuring it survives another 70 years so that it continues to serve our families along with ourselves when it’s needed most is something that I don’t think we can take for granted, I think we all have a part to play in its future.

Kath Evans a children's nurse who leads on improving experiences of care at NHS England came up with the the idea of a NHS1000miles challenge and I intend to run that 1000 miles during 2018 in order to raise much needed funds for Airedale Community Services who help people avoid hospital admittance, facilitate early discharge, provide a 24 hour day, 7 days a week planned and unplanned skilled and specialist nursing service for housebound patients, patients with long or short term conditions, palliative and end of life - the list goes on.

Please give whatever you can, I would be delighted if I could raise £1 for every mile I run - every penny I raise will go towards to patient care in the Airedale and Craven area (AWC Community Trust Fund)
