My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me 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. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

I will be embarking on the 100km sponsored walk on May 12/13. I am not a walker even in everyday life and this will prove to be an incredibly hard challenge for me. I have decided to raise money for the charity SENSE who offer support and advice to deafblind people and have proved an invaluable resource to me and my family.

18 years ago in April 1994, I gave birth to my wonderful son Joshua. Within days of his birth, the doctors announced that he was deafblind. Often there were no organisations or departments within the medical/social or educational sectors that were able to help with all of the areas of his needs. Few stop to think where the funding for charitable organisations come from and often they are able to offer more than government or privately run organisations can. Added to which they offer it with care and compassion. SENSE have always been there for my son and have always been able to offer support or advice taking into consideration all of his sensory losses.

With my son's 18th birthday approaching, I decided to do this walk in honour of SENSE who have supported us though his childhood and will continue to offer him support throughout his adult life. It's my 18th birthday present to them for being there for him.

Please give as little or as much as you can. Every llittle helps and I will be walking with all of you in mind over the 28 hour period! Help me reach this target as much as SENSE helped my son reach where he is today!!!

Many thanks!
