My Activity Tracking


My target 180 mi

I’m fundraising for the charity Sands!

This year I'm taking part in My Marathon My Way to raise vital funds for Sands during this incredibly difficult time.

In these uncertain times, the Sands helpline and online community are vital in keeping bereaved families connected by offering a safe, confidential and compassionate space to talk.

The NHS is stretched and Sands are there to support with the various emotional needs bereaved parents and families have day to day, which can be heightened in such uncertain times.

Sands is not immune from the effects of this pandemic so I’m taking on My Marathon My Way to save lives with every mile.

Happy Birthday Princess

Monday 18th May
Your birthday always brings a sense of peace in someways it marks the end to the hard weeks that start in April as we remember your brother Jon and his place in the world.
But today is your day - eighteen what would that have brought? I will be forever sorry that we did not get the chance to find out the woman you would have been. The sister, daughter, granddaughter and niece - how your presence would have shaped us all.
Instead it is your absence that shapes so much - what a journey that has been!
Tonight there will be cake, candles and celebration that, however briefly, you were here with us and you are and always will be our princess.
Happy birthday Lesley Kathryn born silently 18 May 2002

18 Challenges for Lesley in 2020

Friday 1st May
In just over two weeks it will be 18 years since our nice ordered lives turned upside down and inside out when our second baby and only daughter Lesley was born too early to survive.
To celebrate what should have been a major milestone for her it seems fitting that I do so on her behalf. She may not be able to leave physical footprints here on Earth but since her birth I have made sure that she will leave a legacy.

Challenge 1 - take part in 2.6 Challenge for Sands and donate - Done
Challenge 2 - knit 18 blankets for Sands memory boxes - underway
Challenge 3 - complete a marathon - won't be in one go - and raise funds for Sands

Other challenges to follow
