I am 53 years old a wife and mother to 4 fantastic Children (all grown up now) Nanny Nik to 2 year old lively, loveable grandson and in October 2019 my second grandchild arrived a beautiful granddaughter this time.

I started running as a way of getting fit 4 and half years ago following serious illness. I try and run about 3 or 4 times per week approx 5k with by trusted 4 legged friend Marley dog and have taken part in a couple of 10k races to raise funds for other charities close to my heart Force Cancer Charity and Children's Liver Disease Foundation.

I am taking part in Rwanda 2019 as this is a life changing opportunity to support Compassion who change children's lives helping them out of extreme poverty. It is a unique opportunity to meet that children and see the support they receive through Compassion and hopefully raise additional funds and sponsorships for the children. I will be completely stepping out of my comfort zone never travelled outside of Europe and only half dozen times!!!
