Vale Harvest 19

Lucy Brooke, who is well known to many Haddenham residents as the proprietor of 'Made by Mums' is running the Oxford half marathon as part of her fund raising for a climb of Kilimanjaro.

Lucy writes:

"In March this year my family lost my granny to cancer. She was a very determined lady and decided that she wanted to stay at home during her illness. Her family were all close by and she was blessed that we all visited and stayed during the 12 days that she was so unwell for.

During this time Rennie Grove provided much needed support and help to not only my granny but also the whole family. They provided an amazing at home care service for people with life limiting illnesses.

I started my fitness journey in September last year and have come so far but this is going to be my biggest challenge so far. There are bigger one is to come.

Please help me to reach my target for the 1/2 marathon. I miss my granny lots as do the rest of my family but any funds we can raise to allow Rennie Grove to continue their tremendous work would be wonderful."
