Story


I’m running the Brighton marathon on April 12th 2015. 


If you would like to sponsor me, my chosen charity is the Rockinghorse Children’s Charity. It is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and also supports the Trevor Mann Baby Unit. 


I am personally grateful to the staff at the TMBU as ten years ago, our elder son’s life was saved by the expertise of the staff in that unit. He suddenly stopped breathing an hour after being born, but thankfully, the staff at the Trevor Mann Unit - based in the floor above - rushed down and were able to resuscitate him.


He was transferred upstairs and spent the first few days on his life in the TMBU while they monitored him, and we are lucky that he is now a perfectly healthy 10 year-old. 


We witnessed the dedication and skill of the staff, looking after children much iller than our son, often born prematurely and/or with with much longer-term needs.  


I would therefore like to make my own Drop In The Ocean Thank You to donate any money raised to Rockinghorse.
