My story

[p][b]MP ON THE RUN! [/b]I'm running the 2018 London Marathon (my first 26.2 mile run!) to raise money for two causes that are important to me; the Sun & Stars appeal to refurbish the childrens' wards at West Middlesex Hospital, and for the housing charity Shelter.[/p][p][img][/img][url=http://The SUN & STARS APPEAL: ]The SUN & STARS APPEAL: [/url] The children's inpatient wards care for over 8,000 babies, children and young people every year. The hospital staff provide excellent care, however the ward environment needs an urgent refurbishment. Sun & Stars is a £100,000 appeal to transform the wards into a bright, fun and welcoming environment for the young patients and their parents. The project involves providing; better play facilities, bringing entertainment & distraction to the bedside, creating a teenagers’ area and finally, transforming the facilities for parents[/p][p][url=https://england.shelter.org.uk/what_we_do/our_impact?gclid=CjwKCAjw4sLVBRAlEiwASblR-7rcZXkgNlfHn6N7IxMF_cgMgGuMPcywuL_bObhr232CgyK8pCgGSRoCswwQAvD_BwE]SHELTER:[/url] So much of my casework involves housing problems, and I have referred many many people to Shelter for high quality specialist advice and support. They help people who are homeless, or facing eviction, those who have problems with their landlord or with money issues[/p][p]Last year, Shelter gave information, support and advice to millions of people facing homelessness or experiencing housing issues. And they won’t stop until there’s a safe, secure, affordable home for everyone. [/p][p] [/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p] [/p]
