Running for Willow Wood

Ouch!  Beware of charitable impulses is my advice!

I spent Sunday morning getting to and running in the Wilmslow Half Marathon on behalf of a local charity that Fluid Creativity supports.  This is Willow Wood Hospice, which provides palliative care to people in the Tameside area where we are based.

We’ve recently been working on a rebrand of Willow Wood, which is celebrating its 10th Anniversary – more on this later, when the rebrand is officially unveiled.

Anyway, because we’ve been meeting with the fundraising team at Willow Wood about the rebrand, the idea of me running the Wilmslow Half for the Hospice began to take shape. They are a great team and really hard-working, as well as lovely people to work for.  The blisters I have are well worth it in such a great cause – the team won’t let me paste a photo here as they’re “too gross”!

If you’d like to lessen my pain or help the Willow Wood team a small way towards the massive amount of funds they have to raise each year, please take a look at my JustGiving pageThank you!
