As we near summer, we’re taking a look back and saying a huge thank you to some of our inspirational fundraisers from the first half of this year.
From completing our virtual Seven Wonders of the World challenges, to reaching new distances closer to home – there’s definitely been a fitness theme for our individual fundraisers in 2021 so far.
And every step taken for Julia’s House really does make a difference. Because it’s only with your support that we can keep caring for seriously ill children and families in the heart of your community.
We'd like to say a big thank you to…
Seven year old Harry Byrne, who raised an incredible £6,225 with his 45 mile hospice to hospice hiking challenge over just three days. Part of the Julia’s House family, Harry was cheered on by his little brother Reuben who is cared for by our nurses and carers.
Supporter Odette Morris, who has raised £115 for us by crushing a month-long multi fitness challenge.
Young fundraiser Nate Pollitt, who ran 50 miles in 50 days to raise £745 for local children and families that we care for.
Our volunteer Clare Smale, who has raised more than £500 for us so far with her 'Route 66 in 2021' virtual fitness fundraiser.
Sandra Hazelton, who took on a mega running challenge for us in Wiltshire, raising £704.
Best friends Bella Venus and Beatrice Granger, who ran every day throughout February – come rain, shine or snow – to raise £881 for Julia’s House.
Our volunteer gardener Giles Collins, who took on the virtual Bath Half and raised £2,027 for our care.
Will Oulton, who walked a marathon around Bristol city centre to raise £820 for Julia’s House.
And eight year old Luka Bayes, who raised £1,510 by running a mile every day until he’d completed a marathon challenge for us. The young cricket player was cheered on by members of Potterne Cricket Club when he completed his final mile at the club grounds.
Thanks again to all of our fundraisers – your support makes our care happen.
