Bertrams‘ Michelle Ward has been in touch to tell us about her activities last weekend. Just like last year, she and her son Kieran plus a number of other families – who’ve all benefited from the specialist care Great Ormond Street Hospital has to offer – took part in a sponsored walk at a local stately home…
“On Saturday 29th March I did a 2¼ mile walk at Blickling Hall with my little boy who is 3 and about 20 other families to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The reason we did the walk again this year for the charity is to give as much money back to the Great Ormond Street Hospital as we can for the care they gave my little boy in 2012 when we spent 3 weeks in hospital having 2 open heart operations.
He is still under the care of the hospital and has 6 monthly checkups as he has got a leaky aortic valve that will need replacing sometime in his life. So far I have been able to raise £321.
We invited the EDP along to the walk and we had an article printed in the newspaper.”
Thanks Michelle – Kieran looks very fetching and it’s great to see you’ve already raised more than the amount you reported last year 🙂
