A Big Thank You

A big thank you to all the people who purchased a raffle ticket at the Curry Night to support my fundraising efforts for the Shakespeare Hospice.    Your kind donations raised £130 for this independent local charity providing specialist care for families affected by life limiting illness in South Warwickshire and the North Cotswolds.

On Sunday 20th October I joined 19,999 other people to run in the Bupa Birmingham Half Marathon to raise further funds for the Hospice.   The weather was kind to us and the atmosphere was amazing.  The race had its’ challenging moments especially the killer hill at the 11 mile point when I was reminded of the quote:  “Give up, give in or give it everything you have got!”   In the words of Len Goodman, I ‘gave it some welly’ and crossed the finish line after 2 hours and 4 minutes.  A new personal best for me!     

Yours and my sponsors’ generosity helped to keep me going and enabled me to raise over £900 for the Hospice.    I appreciate your support very much.  

Best wishes 

Karen Barker – Duckpool Barn, Rouse Lane
