My story

[p]So 2019 I was very lucky to get a place in the Ballot and yes I literally 💩 myself when I opened my post and it was the yes magazine 🙃[/p][p]The thought of all the training and the distance scared me but I did it and I loved every minute of it, the training was ok and the big day well....it’s honestly the only race I’ve smiled from beginning to end the crowds the people running/plodding were amazing.[/p][p]I promised myself that I wouldn’t let one of those running Rhinos go past me and that I would finish with a better time than the actor who plays Ian Beale and I did both.[/p][p]So because I enjoyed it soooo much I emailed Phabkids for London 2020 and they said YES they would have me.[/p][p]I have chosen Phab because I look after children in my before and after school club, some who have special needs and some that have a very difficult past. Phab promotes the coming together on equal terms of disabled and non-disabled people to make more of life together - through exciting and challenging holiday projects for disabled and disadvantaged children and young people and 170 local Phab Clubs across England and Wales with 8,000 members. [/p][p]I’m hoping to raise £2000 for this amazing charity who help disabled and non disabled children and adults with their clubs around the UK.[/p][p]I would be very grateful for any donation to my Virgin Money account every penny counts for Phab.[/p][p] All donations will be quickly passed from Virgin Money Giving to Phab for them to start putting your money to work straight away. The more people that know about Phab, the greater the impact will be in helping more young disabled and disadvantaged children become independent and the money you give will quite literally open up a world of opportunity for these children and young people. [/p][p] Please spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thankyou in advance for your support and generosity, it means a great deal! [/p]
