Run Rona Run! Rona front

Having never done much running before, Rona decided to run the half marathon at the end of May to support Play Therapy Base and raise much needed funds to allow us to continue supporting children in the community who are struggling with emotional and behavioural issues.

Rona did an amazing job – completing the 13 miles in 2h15m!

She has raised nearly £800 so far which would provide 16 sessions for a child who is struggling – enough to make a lasting difference in that child’s life.

We are all so proud of Rona for undertakingRona back such a challenge and would like to thank her for all the hard work she put in.

If Rona’s story has sparked your enthusiasm to help raise much needed funds to support these children then please get in touch with us.  Whether you are energetic and fancy running or find the idea of a bake sale more appealing we would love to hear from you!
