Running for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital

On Sunday, my friends Nandini, Bhavna and I ran (in beautiful Richmond Park) to raise money for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital (GOSH). This London based hospital does some amazing work for children around the world. Many a child has been flown in from other parts of the country and world, to be healed by the surgeons and doctors at GOSH. As a mother now, I hope never to have to walk through the corridors of GOSH and I chose this charity as it’s a cause close to my heart.

It was an absolutely beautiful day to run. Crisp but with the sun shining down on us and what a sight Richmond Park is. I’d been there once before, about 8 years ago, and have very fond memories attached to my visit. It was a fun run and as Christmas is around the corner, we all ran in Santa Suits. We raised over £2,000 but our Just Giving page is still open for those who’d like to donate (just click on the link below).

After the run we headed down to another part of the park for lunch in a quaint little café hidden amongst the trees, with a magnificent view of the Thames.

The sun streaming through the clouds on the way home, the perfect end to a great day.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who donated to our cause and cheered us on…your support meant so much to us.

With love xx
