Team story

[p]Thank you for visiting our Virgin Money Giving page. We do all this in support of Tommy's the baby charity because we know the heartache of seeing babies born prematurely and the heartbreak of losing a child. [/p][p][b]Rachel completed the London Marathon on 28 April- 26 miles 385 yards on foot in 5 hours [/b][/p][p][b]Andy and Ashley completed Nightrider London on 8th June - cycling over 63 miles in the dark[/b][/p][p][b]Steve and Adam completed Prudential Ride London 100 on 4th August in a little over 9 hours [/b][/p][p]We celebrate the fact that despite a difficult start to life, Bethany born at 27 weeks weighing just 1lb 7oz is 10 this year. [url=http://www.fivekings.co.uk/bethanys-story/]Read her story here.[/url][/p][p]We remember with sadness that Arthur didn't make it and was borrn sleeping at 32 weeks. Both graphic reminders that we still have some way to go to ensuring every pregnancy runs its course and produces healthy babies. [url=http://www.fivekings.co.uk/arthurs-story/]Read more here.[/url][/p][p]Tommy's fund research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provide pregnancy health information to parents. They believe it is unacceptable that one in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and birth. Tommy's want every parent to have the best possible pregnancy outcomes and take home happy healthy babies. [/p][p]Tommy's give over £1.5 million a year to four research centres to carry out vital work on preventing pregnancy loss. Their research centres also have clinics which provide specialised antenatal care for women who are at high risk of having miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. They also give people the opportunity to be part of our research through taking part in trials for pioneering new treatments.[/p][p]Tommy's are supported by people like us, who want to do something about the lack of research and information around pregnancy issues. By 2030 they want to halve the number of babies who die during pregnancy or birth. We are fundraising to help Tommy's prevent parents from going through baby loss, provide information to empower women through pregnancy and to support those who have suffered pregnancy complications or loss,[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us, and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Tommy's. [/p][p]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.[/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read our page. Please donate to this fantastic cause who are doing ground breaking work in saving babies' lives! We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donation.[/p][p][b]Who we are:[/b][/p][p]Rachel is Bethany's mum and Arthur's aunty[/p][p]Andy is Bethany's dad and Arthur's unclie[/p][p]Adam is Arthur's dad and Bethany's Uncle[/p][p]Steve is grandad to both Bethany and Arthur[/p][p]Ashley is the world's best mate, who along with his wife Sue, has stood with us all throughout the journey.[/p][p][br][/p]
