My story

[p][b]I'm raising funds this year for the CW+ Sun & Stars Appeal at West Mid Hospital, and national charity Young Minds[/b][/p][p][b]Sun and Stars Appeal: [/b] While the hospital staff on the children's wards provide excellent care, the environment needs improvement. I'm supporting the CW+ Charity to create a child-friendly, welcoming, calming environment with better facilities, specifically designed to make being in hospital easier for children and their parents. Improvements include installing a dedicated teenagers' space, a new play room, a 'home-from-home' parents' area, entertainment equipment and technology at every bedside, and bespoke artwork throughout. So far £75,000 of the target £100,000 has being raised, and I want to help CW+ get over the line!

That’s why I’ve decided that my second Marathon charity this year is Young Minds – they’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.
