My story

[p]I'm running the Virgin London Marathon in April 2018 to raise money for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital (GOSH). Ever since I was on the Great British Bake Off in 2014, I've been lucky enough to fundraise with the wonderful teams at GOSH and see first hand what incredible work they do. [/p][p]Over the past year, we've had even more insight into their work, as good friends of ours have two sons being treated for cancer at the Hospital. This has involved so many overnight stays for the boys and their parents so on their behalf, I would like the funds I raise to go towards improved [url=http://www.gosh.org/what-we-do/child-and-family-support]Family Support [/url]facilities for parents and visitors who have to stay at GOSH. At what can be one of the most frightening times for any family, anything that can make the process better is so valuable and appreciated. [/p][p]GOSH is also the UK's largest dedicated charitable funder of medical research into children's health, helping to save young lives every day. I hope the money I raise can go towards one of GOSH's priority research areas specifically: [url=http://www.gosh.org/what-we-do/research/our-research-strategy/cancer]hard to treat childhood cancers[/url].[/p][p]Training for a marathon is always hard work but I'm joined on this adventure by 12 friends and former Bake Off contestants from Seasons 4, 5, 6 and 7. Together, as a 'Baker's Dozen', we have been supporting each other through the early starts and runs in the ice and snow and I can't wait to be part of this with them. My wife Sarah is also running the marathon for GOSH this year so it's a real family event.[/p][p]Please give generously to this wonderful charity who do so much for children and their families across the UK and worldwide.[/p]
