Home-Start provide volunteers to families who need a bit of help. There are many reasons why parents might be struggling, from changing circumstances to emotional difficulties and a whole host of other situations.
When our twins were young we were lucky enough to have a brilliant Home-Start helper who came to us weekly for over three years. She listened patiently, gave us emotional support and a much-needed spare pair of hands, and enabled us to try activities that would otherwise have been impossible.
I hope that by raising a bit of money for this brilliant charity I can help others to benefit in the same way. I am running the Royal Parks half-marathon on October 9th - 13.2 miles. Laura Jenner
