Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On 28th April this year, my beautiful little niece was born in Pembury Hospital in Kent. A huge high for everyone in our family. Another little girl. Within hours my sister Lucy noticed something wasn't quite right. Over time it became clear that Tallulah had Down Syndrome which was a massive surprise to everyone, including my sister and brother in law Mike.

A life changing moment for us all but there is no doubt that little Tallulah will be loved so much even though there will be immensely tough times for everyone, especially Lucy & Mike.

I'm taking on what sounds like a massive challenge to help raise funds for the Down's Syndrome Association which supports those who have to change so much to look after the amazing little children that have this syndrome. This will probably break me physically but the pain won't be anything compared to the tough times that ALL of the families have to deal with when they find themselves in this situation.

I'm starting at 4pm on Friday 6th October and will finish the next day at 4pm. I have two Watt Bikes and will be calling on some friends to come and help me through. For those of you who don't know what a Watt Bike is or how it differs to a normal spin bike, just jump on one at the local health club for a few minutes and feel the difference. It's not a friendly machine!

Come and say hi, come and join in, bring me some food to help me, I'm going to need it. But most of all I would love your support through a donation which I can make to the Down's Syndrome Association to help make a difference in the support and research they undertake.

Thank you so much, not just from me but from my whole family. They've been amazing and will continue to be. Tallulah is the best little cousin and sister and we love her so much and can't wait to see her grow up.
