This marathon has been a long time coming and I’ve been reluctant to start fundraising until I knew it was happening for sure! 3rd time lucky!

Originally in a running team of 7, (3 from my night shift crew) I am now the only staff member running this marathon from CHF. 

I’ve worked at Chailey Heritage Foundation for over 3 years and see first hand how peoples’ generosity in the form of charitable donations can improve, and even transform every aspect of the provision for these lovely young people.

During the pandemic, all fundraising events had to be put on hold, and all usual revenue channels such as respite provision had to be cancelled. On top of this, the foundation had to foot the bill for additional staff cover for staff Covid sufferers, shielders and for all the additional PPE and measures necessary to protect the already vulnerable young people. Chailey Heritage Foundation understandably now need to make the most of every fundraising opportunity to claw back those reserves used.

So, if you have a heart to improve lives of some incredible young warrior who every day is a battle for, if you want to share some spare pennies to give stability back to a long standing charity doing such good, then please please donate! 

I shall be wearing my Chailey running top with pride on September 12th, along with some very happy colour-coordinated leggings to boot.

Come cheer me on and let’s put an end to the constant on off training and put this bucket list marathon to bed!
