Visiting Brian House is always a happy occasion as the staff and volunteers do a fantastic job.
One of our Trinity trustees, local GP Helen Grenier, ran the London Marathon in April and raised £3,170 for Brian House. She decided to do the race for Brian House’s 21st and for her 60th birthday. She had an initial target of £2100 (for the 21st) and managed to absolutely smash this! She managed to complete the marathon in 5 hrs 44 mins 36 seconds and was extremely proud of her time. Helen had a lot of support from her friends and family, especially from her son, Matthew, who surprised her by turning up at mile 20 after he had been working away in Guatemala.
Helen said: “Despite the many challenges the children and their families face, visiting Brian House is always a happy occasion as the staff and volunteers do a fantastic job in helping the children live a fulfilling, fun life, and supporting their families.”
