Liz is a long distance runner and Commonwealth Games bronze medallist who has competed in two Olympic marathons.
Liz said: "Initially I was asked to be a Patron of Julia’s house when I was expecting my first child some 7 years ago. As an expectant parent, all you want for your child is good health, and I can’t imagine how hard it must be to learn that your child has a health issue, and then have to deal with the day to day struggles of caring for your poorly child. You also want happiness for your children and often happy parents make happy children.
“This is where Julia’s House does amazing work in supporting families, so they can make it through day to day, and week to week by providing amazing respite care and support. This makes a huge difference to the families and the siblings of the children at Julia's House.”
