If there’s one thing I really, really don’t enjoy, it’s running. The sad fact is, I’m not terribly good at it. I usually make an excellent start, then start flagging after thirty seconds, only to turn a worrying shade of purple after about a minute or so.
However, I’m a sucker for a good cause, which is why I’ll be running this Saturday in the Rainbow Run, raising money for Children’s Hospice South-West.
Children’s Hospice South-West
As a mother myself, I can only imagine the heart-ache of having a child with a terminal condition. Of course, there’s not only the emotional impact, but the stresses associated with day-to-day life, and the responsibility of caring for someone with serious medical requirements.
Children’s Hospice South-West do an amazing job of supporting children with incurable, life-limiting health conditions – and their families too. They have three hospices in the South-West, offering care and support, for as long as the family needs them. But, as you can imagine, this is an expensive operation – and needs our support.
It’s such a worthy charity, which is why I’ll happily be flailing around the track, getting very sweaty and out of breath. Obviously, the more money I can raise to help make a difference, the better. If you can spare any money, even a couple of quid, it’ll help.

Many thanks, everyone!
