My story

[p]Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page![/p][p]During training for the London marathon 2018 I said I would never do another marathon - never say never! I cannot describe the buzz of marathon day - it was amazing!! So within a couple of weeks of the 2018 marathon I was applying for a place to run it again in 2019. I am very lucky to have been given a charity place by Daisy's Dream.[/p][p]Daisy's Dream are a Berkshire based charity supporting children and young people who are facing, or have experienced, the death of someone close.[/p][p]In January 2010, my younger sister Alice was told that she had terminal cancer and that she had a maximum of 2 years to live. For me as an adult to take this all in and deal with it was hard enough, but the day we had to tell our 2 young daughters that their beloved Auntie was going to die was absolutely heart breaking. [/p][p]Your job as a parent is to protect your children from hurt as much as you possibly can so to have to sit them down and tell them something which you know is going to shatter their illusions that everything is rosy in the world goes against everything you've ever done .[/p][p]Daisy's Dream were there to support us and our children as well as my sister and her children.[/p][p]Each year Daisy's Dream support hundreds of families with a service that is tailored to meet the individual needs of each child. This can range from over the phone advice for parents, carers and professionals to 1:1 home and/or school visits for the child, as well as therapeutic group events. [/p][p]All of Daisy's Dream's services are provided to families completely free of charge and they do not receive any statutory funding for their work.[/p][p]Their work is invaluable to those that they support and I am hoping to raise as much money as I can to support them. Donating through this page is quick, easy and secure.[/p][p]Please donate generously for a very good cause to help me achieve my target and more! [/p][p]Please share this link with friends and family on social media to help me reach my target; together we can help those who need Daisy's Dream. Thank you![/p][p]Can you help us to support children when they need it the most?[/p]
