My story

[p]Inspiration Alert; this is Lucy Williams, a local Mum we are supporting through Home-Start Reading home visits. Lucy’s husband has incurable cancer and she says that although they have lots of incredible support from organisations such as Macmillan, Home-Start Reading is the only organisation where Lucy’s needs and emotional wellbeing have been cared for while she looks after her husband and two small children.[/p][p]Lucy joined a gym as a way to de-stress, make some much needed time for herself, and because she is able to go there late in the evening when her children are asleep so her husband is able to be left with them. Through this she took up running on the tread mill, and she has decided that she wants to take on the challenge of the Reading half marathon. She says she can’t think of anyone she would rather raise funds for than Home-Start Reading so she wishes to run for us.[/p][p]We are in awe of Lucy’s strength and determination, and so grateful that she has chosen to represent us on April 5th at the Reading Half Marathon. It’s also incredibly rewarding to hear of the positive impact we are making to families in times of crisis. [/p][p]Thank you Lucy; we’ll be cheering you on all the way.[/p]
