Fundraising for Winston’s Wish

Since posting the news of the tragic loss of my big sister on this blog, I’ve been overwhelmed by messages of sympathy and support. I’ve been replying to some as they come in but haven’t had the time or the energy to reply to them all, so just wanted to say here thank you to everyone who’s been in touch. Although I haven’t replied to them all I am reading them all, and it’s been very comforting.

Last week, I signed up for the Winston’s Wish Sunrise Walk – a ten-mile walk to raise money for the child bereavement charity that has been an essential source of support and advice to us in explaining things to my sister’s two young sons, and in helping them to understand and express their grief. I’ve set up a JustGiving page, so if anyone would like to sponsor me I would be incredibly grateful for the support.

I posted this to Twitter when I’d first set it up and have been astonished at the generous response it’s already generated. Enormous, heartfelt thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far: I honestly didn’t expect to raise so much so quickly. I’m really touched by how generous everyone has been, and I’m thrilled to be able to contribute in such a meaningful way to Winston’s Wish. I honestly don’t know what we’d have done without their help, especially in those first few days after Mandi died, so am really glad to be able to give something back.
