Sheila Runs for Springboard
One of our volunteers, Sheila Anderson, is taking part in the London 10k race this Sunday, 27th May, where she will be running to raise money for Springboard.
Sheila says: "I first started running five years ago, having watched my daughter take part in charity runs. In my first event I walked most of the route in the pouring rain, got literally soaked to the skin, but really enjoyed it. I had the bug! I went on to enter the Great North Run to celebrate my 60th birthday."
"Following my retirement, I started volunteering at Springboard after reading about their work in the local press. I soon realised how important their facilities are for children with additional needs and their families. I now run regularly with Clevedon Ladies Running Group, and try to take part in one charity run a year. This year, I have chosen to run for Springboard in the Bupa London 10,000m run on 27th May. I am excited about running a route which will be part of the London Olympic marathon route, and I hope to raise around £250 for Springboard."
