A couple of years ago someone entered her into the London Marathon as a joke, there was no way she was going to attempt to do it.
Then the worst thing ever happened! Dan passed away suddenly. Just days later Helen received confirmation that she had a place in the marathon. She said straight away she was going to “do it for Dan”. She deferred her place for a year and now today is the day SHE WILL DO IT FOR DAN.
Thanks to everyone who has donated and supported her. This is one brave lady but we know Dan is going to be by her side every step of the way and will see her across the finish line.

We would like to thank everyone for the amazing support over the past 12 months but also the lovely messages we have all received today.
It’s been a hard day but 1 year on please raise a glass to Dan
