Are raising money for the Rowan Suite at Frimley Park Hospital because this is where Emma and Trevor had their beautiful baby boy who was stillborn last year
A group did a “Virtual” Run Frimley and few weeks ago. Here are some photos mostly selfies of the girls either just before heading off or when they had finished their run.

This fundraising event was for Wexham Park ITU Recovery Ward as small show of gratitude for the amazing care and attention a good friend of theirs received whilst recovering.
David created the whole 3 day event. 12 hours a day, 1 hour each family, 3 days around their village.
“It was quite easy to set up overall. Once I knew which site to use (JustGiving) it only took a few minutes to set up.
Setting up the event itself took longer, but it was really helped by having a strong community to support.
Once I got a few people interested and committed to the event, others quickly joined and we easily reached the target of having 36 families involved. And having so many people involved really made the fundraising easy, as did using Social Media to get the message out there quickly.
It also really helped fundraising for a cause that is both very worthy and also very topical currently!
On the day itself again the use of social media was key to show to everyone how the event was progressing and also create the buzz around the event that made it such a success.
I would encourage anyone to take the plunge and get involved in this sort of fundraising. I really enjoyed it and found it immensely rewarding, as well as meeting loads of new people locally. I am also more than happy to advise others and help develop a model to get communities involved elsewhere”.

And remember, every penny makes a difference.
