One of our members, Juliet Breschinsky will be running the Great North Run on September 8th 2019. It is a half marathon so a distance of 13.1 miles. (21km)

Serious fund raising is now underway and she is asking kindly for you to donate to a great charity, The Rainbow Trust.

 

This excellent charity supports families who have a child 0-18yrs with a life threatening or terminal illness and need the bespoke support the Rainbow Trust offers.

There are 49,000 children and young people in the UK with a life limiting or life-threatening condition. Some will need palliative care. Some families are able to cope in a crisis situation but some are not.

The Rainbow Trust supports parents, the child, siblings and grandparents. There are eight teams around the country from Southampton to County Durham.

The Trust will take siblings to school, the cinema and the zoo. They offer respite care, cook meals and do shopping for the family. They also help with hospital visits when needed. The Rainbow Trust also support families in the neonatal unit. The Trust also offers 24hr telephone support at a time of bereavement.

We all wish her well for her efforts. Please CLICK HERE if you would like to sponsor Juliet to help her raise money for this worthwhile charity. It will be televised on the day.
