We help premature and sick babies in the UK to give every baby the best possible future

Charity Registration No. 1002973, Registered Scottish Charity SC040878


 7 years ago my son was born 12 weeks premature and spent 5 very long months in the Neonatal Unit at Jessops Hospital, Sheffield. During this difficult time i became aware of the premature baby charity Bliss. Due to the lack of support in Sheffield my wife later became involved in a local charity linked to Bliss called Sheffield's Little Miracles. I vowed at the time that i would endeavor to support these worthy causes once I could cope with the situation.


Since those dark days I have done all i can to raise money for Bliss. I have cycled from London to Sheffield after discovering a bike in the back of my garage, Kayaked the same route (although it was a bit longer as we had to go via Scunthorpe and there was the small matter of fact that I had never been in a canoe before), and this year on the eve of my 50th birthday in September I am intending to run from London to Sheffield, some 160 miles approx, in the space of approx 8 days.


All monies raised on this page will go to Bliss with also a donation to be made to Sheffields Little Miracles.

Thank you for stopping by and please give generously.
