Nicky's Story

“2 years ago today I was completing the London Marathon, injured and a tad hot!  This Sunday would be the Marathon day something that’s also been close to my family. So I’m asking you to please join me in and share support for local charities who are missing out on their fundraising opportunities”

Earlier this week Nicky posted on Social Media…

“I’m tagging 26 people to please support Slide Away by doing something small and fun, even if it’s lifting 2.6 (or26) drinks in a day.... or donating £2.60 or even 26p every little helps. Please feel free to send me photos or videos of what you doing. And if you haven’t been tagged you are still welcome to join in.

Small local charities need your support right now and when life resumes we are sadly going to have lots of school pupils to support.  Slide Away works with bereaved youngsters supporting them with workshops which enables them to make memories and to learn coping strategies to support them during difficult times. Please help this local charity on Sunday by trying to find a 2.6 challenge. Thank you.  

Since sharing Nicky has so far raised £650! Thank you Nicky and donors!
