On Saturday 22nd May 2021 a team of 27 BSG group members and Twins Trust staff ran a 5 or 10k to raise funds for our group. 8 of us travelled to Olympic Park London to take part at the event and the others completed the run virtually. 

Our Whatsapp group was a hive of activity from around 6.30 am when Lucy set off. We shared photos, good luck and well done messages all day, congratulating each other on our achievements. 

We ran in memory of all of our Twins Trust babies and have raised over £6500 so far with gift aid, and it’s still going up! This will make so much difference to our bereavement group and help us to continue to provide support to our bereaved families. One of the first things we are spending some of the money on are the Certificates of Birth, and we also have some Befriender training planned in June. We are also planning to get another Memorial Day organised for next year. 

A big well done to everyone who took part - you were all amazing, and a huge thank you to all of you who have donated.

We are planning for this to become a yearly event and hope that even more of you can join us next year.
