My story

[p]When I decided to enter the Reading Half Marathon 2020 after a 10 year hiatus, I was delighted to see that Home Start was one of the highlighted charities to run for. They say charity begins at home and for me and my family, it did with Home Start. Family challenges come in different ways, financial, physical or emotional hardship, and a whole host of other things. For us we were first time parents of twins and although we were lucky to have employment and friends and family around, the day to day struggles and on and off child sickness made many days more about just getting through and surviving to the next morning - it was just very hard work in those early years. Home start provided my wife and I with amazing support and mentoring when we needed it to get on an even keel. Small local charities survive mainly on private donations and their good work goes mainly unnoticed. If you can help me support this cause that would be amazing. After 10 years and twins, I'm much slower, more tired and full of niggles and aches but I'm also a lot more appreciative and enthusied about helping others if I can. Please donate if you can spare some money. Thanks so much for listening, Simon[/p]
