We provide specialist care and support to life-threatened children & their family


This year I was lucky enough to secure a place in the London marathon ballot, most people who know me associate me with being a half decent cyclist. However, running is definitely not one of my biggest strengths and will certainly offer a new challenge.

It has always been an aim of mine to run a marathon and to complete London will be extra special, for the past 9 years I have entered the ballot but I have had little success. For many years I believed that running a marathon would be out of reach due to being diagnosed with CRPS during adolescence and then tearing my meniscus more recently.

As part of running the marathon, I decided I’d like to raise some money for a local charity. I have chosen to run for the East Anglian Children’s Hospice (EACH). They are an amazing charity who support families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. Each year they need to raise £6.7 million from charity to allow them to continue providing the wide range of services within their hospices and throughout east Anglia. It will definitely help me knowing that every stride I take will make a difference to the lives of those who need it most.

In the build up to London, I will also be completing Cambridge half marathon and Hillingdon 20. Training is currently going well and my longest run so far has been 10 miles.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and read my page, any donations, sharing of the page, or even well wishes along the way will be greatly appreciated.
