My story

[p]Running is a fairly new sport to me; I started at the beginning of 2020 by joining some friends who were training for the 2020 London Marathon. I ran with them and completed a half marathon in early March 2020. Although meeting up for runs has been a bit on and off over the last year due to Covid, we have managed to keep running and my friends asked why didn’t I try for a place on the London Marathon now taking place in October 2021. I decided a Charity place was the way to go. It would give me a massive incentive to keep training and also not only give me euphoria of having completed 26.2 miles but of having raised a substantial amount of money for a charity who needs funds now more than ever.[/p][p]I looked at the official list on the marathon website but it would almost be a case of just choosing one and my funds going into a big pot. I was, therefore, excited when I saw on the Shipston Home Nursing website that they were looking to fill a place. Shipston Home Nursing being a local charity meant that many of my friends would know of it, one that local businesses would support and a charity that is well respected for the amazing work they do and that many local people will either have benefitted from or know someone who has.[/p][p]I was, therefore, delighted when Rebecca accepted my application; so between now and October I shall be running the roads in the local area so if you see me, give me a wave and encourage me on.[/p][p]Shipston Home Nursing care for people with illnesses which do not respond to curative treatment. Their nursing service operates 24hrs a day, 365 days a year and their care is free of charge to patients and families. They operate through a team of fantastic Registered General Nurses (RGN’s) and Health Care Assistants (HCA’s) who always go the extra mile. Their approach is sensitive and caring and they aim to provide support for the whole family to help them through very difficult times.[/p][p][br][/p]
