I have been a keen runner for many years and after the birth of my youngest child I was keen to get back into my running shoes again and be able to support Edward’s Trust at the same time.
The Bupa Birmingham Great Run seemed like the perfect opportunity to do both.
My godsons Felix (aged 7) and Angus (aged 4) and my daughter Isobel (aged 5) also wanted to be involved & I was delighted when they joined me to be part of the big day. They were all very excited to be involved in the Bupa Great Birmingham Run 2013 – Mini-Marathon. What a great day we all had and we thank the Birmingham crowds for their amazing support.
Thanks to generous support of my employer HSBC, between us we have raised over £1,000. This will help support many more counselling sessions for bereaved families; it is thanks to the amazing work of Edward’s Trust that some so many local families, including friends, have been given their lives back.
We know how important 2014 will be for Edward’s Trust. To be celebrating 25 years of supporting bereaved families is an amazing achievement. Put quite simply, Edward’s Trust changes people’s lives. We have all entered into the 2014 Great Birmingham Run and we will be proudly supporting the Team 25 Edward’s Trust team. We might even be abseiling for Edward’s Trust on Saturday 8th June 2014 too!
