The Skelly Family: Barton Carnival

We raised money for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund because my niece (Imogen) was Diagnosed with ventricular septal defect in October 2011 aged 1. She got endocarditis in February 2013. She was in Leeds for treatment for 7 weeks and had open heart surgery in May 2013, aged 2.

We can’t thank you enough, for everything you did for her. Not only the treatment, but also the great aftercare. we wanted to try and help other children by raising money. Hopefully this is just the start and more fundraising will be happening in the future.

Adam Wilberforce: The Yorkshire Wolds Way

Adam & Chris took on the challenge of The Yorkshire Wolds Way, a National Trail in Yorkshire. It runs 79 miles from Hessle to Filey, around the Yorkshire Wolds.

Adam said

We wanted to show appreciation and give back to the charity for saving my daughter Nancie Matilda’s life. It was hard to be away from our families but made for emotional and meaningful memories to remember.

Chris added

I would say it’s one of the best experiences of my life, even better knowing that it was for a fantastic charity that helps and supports families when they need it most!

Thank you to all our amazing supporters this week – all doing fantastic feats for one very worthy cause. Feel inspired? Email [email protected] to find out how you can get involved!
