I have somehow managed to gain a ballot place in the London Marathon 2018. I will be raising money for 2 charities incredibly close to the hearts of my family – Alzheimer’s and Shipston Home Nursing, in memory of my lovely grandparents.
Shipston Home Nursing are an amazing charity providing hospice care at home. They have a wonderful team of professional nurses who provided 24/7 nursing care and support for our family in my grandfathers final few weeks, allowing him to stay at home surrounded by his family but still receiving all the medical care possible.
I have now lost 2 grandparents after long battles with the devastating disease dementia. This currently has no cure but the Alzheimer’s Society are working to try and change that. They also provide multiple services to help people affected by dementia including activity groups such as Singing for the Brain and helping to provide home care and support.
Both of these charities will be so grateful of any donations you can spare, thank you!
