My page:

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our page.

3 challenges this year as I had to make up for the 2 I had to cancel last year due to my foot injury. All three are entirely self funded from beginning to end so any donation will go straight to our chosen charity.

Teamed up with my wonderful husband, Andrew on the third/last/most difficult challenge.

52km Isle of Wight April 29th 2017 = done in 13hrs37mn

52km Brecon Beacon June 3rd 2017 = done in 11hrs40mn

100km Cotswold July 1st/2nd with hubby = 31hrs04mn (Andrew had to pull out at 64km due to severe blisters on his feet. I carried on my own. The most difficult challenge I've ever done!!!)

We are super proud and excited to fundraise for our most wonderful and helpful local Down syndrome support group: Stepping Stones DS. This charity, entirely self- funded and volunteers-led, is doing wonders for over 120 families with children with Down syndrome ranging from 0 to 19 across 3 different counties: Surrey, North Hampshire and Bershire. Thanks to them, Kathleen has started playing tennis and I've also been able to access some extremely useful training days. Moreover, teachers, therapists, professionals in various fields, all benefit and learn on how best to support our differently-abled children!!! So, as for every charity, every penny counts! Thanks for your support! xxxxx

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
