My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Nature Nurture Fund. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][lt]h3[gt][span=color: #339966;]Over Saturday and Sunday 26[sup]th[/sup]& 27[sup]th[/sup] May a [b]team of three[/b] ran in the [b]Edinburgh marathon event[/b] for [b]Nature Nurture[/b].  The runners and their times were:[/span][lt]/h3[gt] [ul] [li][lt]h3[gt][span=color: #339966;][b]Adam Milne: 10k[/b] :1hr 14m[/span][lt]/h3[gt][/li] [li][lt]h3[gt][span=color: #339966;][b]Stefan Geider: full marathon[/b]: 4hr 32m[/span][lt]/h3[gt][/li] [li][lt]h3[gt][span=color: #339966;][b]Nick Lockyer: full marathon[/b]:[b] [/b]3hr 42m[/span][lt]/h3[gt][/li] [/ul] [lt]h3[gt][span=color: #339966;][b]Congratulations[/b] and [b]appreciation[/b] from all at [b]Nature Nurture[/b] and the [b]children[/b] it supports.[/span][lt]/h3[gt][p]Nature Nurture Fund – ‘Supporting disadvantaged children’.[/p] [p]This is a new fund to support the work of the Nature Nurture Project, an innovative approach to promoting resilience and improving the life chances of vulnerable and disadvantaged children.[/p] [p][b]Nature Nurture[/b] is the first early intervention programme in the UK that tackles vulnerability and promotes resilience by combining free play and nurturing interactions in natural environments.[/p] [p]The children and young people, aged from 0 - 16, come from families affected by substance misuse, alcohol abuse, domestic violence, poverty, homelessness, deprivation and neglect.[/p] [p]The approach defines resilience as ‘[i]the mental, emotional and physical fortitude to recover from adversity and realise potential.[/i]’ Resilience is a key factor in breaking generational cycles of vulnerability and disadvantage and in building positive outcomes for adult life.[/p] [p]The Nature Nurture Fund has a fund raising target this year of £150,000. This can provide 120 children with a place on a Nature Nurture programme during this year. A programme consists of 20 sessions delivered on a weekly basis to groups of 10 children. One session per child costs £60; a programme of sessions per child costs £1200; a programme per group of 10 children costs £12,000.[/p] [p]The first major event to get our fund raising campaign rolling is participation in the Edinburgh Marathon. If you would like to make a contribution to the fund by sponsoring me, please follow the 'Donate now' links. Every penny makes a difference.[/p] [p]Fund raising activities will include other high profile events throughout the year and I’ll keep you up to date with progress on a regular basis.[/p]
