Story

Hi my name is Hero and I am fourteen. I'm part of a campaign called Kids in the Middle. I want to help children if they are going through the horrible experience of seeing their mum and dad split up.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

My parents divorced when I was 5 but didn’t completely split till I was 7 and then sort of fought over me till I was 9. It meant that up until that point home was sometimes like a war-zone.  Now they don’t see each other much and have reached a kind of truce.

I don’t really ever remember them being happy but I guess they must have been and that is why they decided to have me and my brother.

Kids in the Middle is a place where children can share any problems they face if their mum and dad separate. Children will be able to find re-assurance from their peers that their situation is not their fault and that it is OK to seek support. They will find expert advice and signposts to places where they can get further help of different kinds.

Every penny you donate will go directly to providing a vital one-to-one online service to support young people.

Together we can do this - you have to help us!

So please dig deep and donate now.

Thanks,

Hero

I wrote a story about my swim in the Travel Section of the Daily Mail which explains how epic it was! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/article-2416099/Heros-epic-adventure-A-teenager-takes-Turkeys-treacherous-Hellespont-race.html

Well done Hero! Kids in your situation need support & advice from someone who knows how it feels. I wish there had been something like this around when I was a teen. Good Luck, you're an inspiration!

When your mum made you get in a freezing cold Bala lake when you were about 6 to show me you had learned to swim I thought it would put you off forever! Clearly not. Fabulous cause. Well done.

I have seen the fast moving waters of the Hellespont and the size of the ferocious looking jelly fish and I would be hesitant to cross in a boat! Well done Hero! C J Bramall (Chets)
