My story

[p]Hello[/p][p]As most of you know, we lost my beautiful mum back in March 2007. In the lead up to her death she stayed at the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice, whose care and support for both her and our family were second to none. It made her final days with us just a tiny bit easier- we didn’t have to worry that she wasn’t being looked after as she was in the best hands when we couldn’t be there. We didn’t have to pay a penny for her stay, but this means that the hospice relies on donations to be able to provide this for those in need of it. [/p][p]I ran the London marathon back in 2017, and with the help of you lovely people I managed to raise £6,000 for them. I would love to be able to beat that this time, but know that you aren’t going to sponsor me for doing the same thing again, so I have upped my game and will be running both the Manchester Marathon on 5th April, followed by the London Marathon on the 26th. (Not including the London Landmarks Half Marathon on 29th March!) [/p][p]Last time it took me 6 weeks to run again after the marathon, and I only managed 2.5 miles, so this is going to be quite the challenge! I strongly believe though, that if you want sponsorship then you have to work for it, so that’s what I’ll be doing. [/p][p]Mum, this is all for you. It always is. I hope I make you proud. [/p][p]Thank you, Love[/p][p]Louise x[/p]
