Angela Swinden found out about Katie’s Trust through Alison Easto (Mirren’s auntie) and offered to raise funds for the Trust whilst running the Belfast Half Marathon. Although Angela has participated in many running events, this one proved to be a real test because she was not well on the day! Not only did Angela complete the 13-mile course, she also raised a huge £640 in the space of ten days. A massive thanks to Angela, her husband and everyone who donated through JustGiving (https://www.justgiving.com/Angela-BelfastHalfMarathon/).no comments
Cammie cycled the 47 miles from Glasgow Green to Murrayfield last weekend in a fantastic time of 4 hours. It’s even more impressive when you realise he had his dad drafting in his slipstream all the way!!!! Cammie used the cycle to raise £460 for Katie’s Trust – a huge amount by any standards! Here is Cammie in action –
Thanks very much from Auntie Ann and Uncle Andrew.no comments

And there is still a ‘third half’ – there is still some money to come in and we know of at least two more planned events.
This is great news, especially when you think that a lot of this has been gift aided as well.
