I am delighted to be running The London mararthon 2024 for Contact, a charity close to my family's hearts,thanks to the help they have given my sister Claire and brother in law Sean with their daughter Hannah.Our Han has just turned 18 and now feels the perfect time for me to give something back and support this wonderful charity which supports families with disabled children.

This Is Hannah's Story

This is Hannah. Hannah has a chromosome disorder called Jacobsen’s syndrome and as a consequence has both physical and learning disabilities as well as complex medical needs. Her condition was so rare that none of her doctors knew anything about it. Contact was the only source of information we had on Hannah’s condition when she was first diagnosed.

Contact provide a wealth of information and support for disabled children and their families. The support they offer is invaluable from the helpline, the online information and advice to the national campaigns that put disabled children and their families at the forefront of political discussion.

Many families feel frustrated and ignored and can’t always access the services that they are entitled to. Contact provides an invaluable service supporting and signposting families in their quest for a better quality of life for their child.

When I have a problem, Contact is the first place I go to for advice. Raising a disabled child whilst is extremely rewarding, can be stressful and hard at times. Knowing that Contact can be there at the other end of the phone line or will respond quickly to messages makes things so much easier.

Contact have helped Hannah and her family and many more besides. By donating you are enabling this wonderful charity to continue to offer support to disabled children and their families in the future.
