Story

GBSS is a really important charity to me and I am lucky to work with them on their board and see their dedication almost every day.

in October 2022 I was lucky enough to ‘volunteer’ my son Peter to run the London Marathon in aid of GBSS. Now it’s my turn! I couldn’t run a marathon in a day but this is a target I can meet!

If you can, please sponsor me. Thank you in advance!!

Group B Streptococcus is the UK's most common cause of life-threatening infection in newborn babies and of meningitis in babies under age 3 months.

On average in the UK, at least

-two babies a day develop a group B Strep infection

-one baby a week dies from their GBS infection, and

-one baby a week survives with long-term disabilities physical, mental or both.

Yet most group B Strep infections are preventable. Group B Strep Support informs families & health professionals about group B Strep to save tiny lives
