I will be taking part in a 5k Park Run on 23rd May at Quarry Park in Shrewsbury to raise vital funds for the automotive industry charity, BEN and Dr Gardner's Charity for Nurses.
Last year at BEN’s annual Ball in December, I gave a heart-felt address to an audience of over 1,000 people by explaining the life changing impact of BEN’s help during a personal crisis. I told how during my pregnancy, in the 39th week, I suffered a stroke and then gave birth three days later while paralysed on my left side.
With BEN’s help and support, specialist equipment was purchased which enabled me to walk again and return to sharing quality time with my family. My main goal was to start running again, which I’ve achieved, and through this activity I now want to raise as much as I possibly can to help fund and support another family facing their own life-changing circumstances.
Please give generously to help these two worthy charities who have helped me literally every step! They gave me back my independence and that has been life-changing for me and my family.
