Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Pippa was a little ray of sunshine and a bundle of mischief. At just three years old she had so much love of life, and brought sunshine and sparkle into the lives of me, my wife Catherine and her big brother Aubrey. Only 10 days after becoming the most excited girl in the world with the arrival of her little brother Elliott, Pippa was taken away from us all overnight on 10th April 2014. She developed sepsis after suffering pneumonia, and passed away just hours after being admitted to hospital. Her loss has devastated us all, and many of those who knew her.

It is hard to remember Pippa without overwhelming sorrow, but along with my close friend Dave Furlong we decided that in her memory we would take on a challenge usually reserved for men of younger age and/or better fitness levels. So as the London Marathon falls almost exactly on the anniversary of Pippa's passing we felt that it would be an appropriate challenge, and Child Bereavement UK an appropriate charity. 

Please support us as much as you are able. We would love to make the event a really special one, in honour of darling Pippa.
