Team story

[p]About 10 years ago a friend's 18 month-old son, Christian Blandford, was diagnosed with not one but two cancers in quick succession. Christian was treated in St George's Hospital, Tooting, as well as other hospitals. Luckily Christian survived (please read Christian's story here: http://www.christianblandford.com) but the state of the children's ward at St George's Hospital made Peter and Claudia want to raise money to help change the conditions in which children such as Christian are treated. As well as Peter and Christian's annual Father Christmas/Elf visit to the ward distributing presents to the children, Peter and Claudia have done and raised much in the ten years since to improve the ward. But a lot more still needs to be done. Recently they embarked on their most ambitious plan yet, to raise £100,000 to completely refurbish St George's Hospital Children's ward. This will benefit children who unfortunately will need treatment there. [/p][p]To achieve this they have enlisted some of us to do a 2 mile open water canoe, followed by an 8 mile bike ride then a 7 mile trek finishing with a 13 mile bike ride.This will take place in the Lake District between May 18th - 20th, and Kym and I, who know each other from the same school that Christian attended, have joined forces to get round the course. Please help us raise as much as we can for such a worthy cause. [/p]
