Juliette Chamberlain, from local building company Adcroft Build & Renovation, is hoping to complete a new challenge for Naomi House Children’s Hospice and Jacksplace young adult hospice in Hampshire. She will be running her first marathon - the London Marathon - in April and is currently in the middle of her very wet winter training!
Having worked for a number of years as a fundraiser at Naomi House before moving to Milford on Sea ten years ago, Juliette knows first hand the invaluable care and support the hospice provides to terminally ill children and their families. “The journey that these families take is extraordinarily difficult and painful; and one which most of us could not begin to understand. It is however, a journey which is made more manageable with the support of the hospice and the amazing care team.”
“It costs around £7 million a year to provide respite, end of life palliative care, emergency care and bereavement support to hundreds of families across central Southern England and it is only made possible by the generous support of local people.”
Having climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2006 for Naomi House with her father, Dave (raising £4,500), and abseiled off Spinnaker Tower in July last year with her husband, Tom, Juliette feels the time is right to take part in another challenge, but more importantly to call upon the generosity of the community once again to support her and help raise crucial funds for Naomi House and Jacksplace; help keeping this vital service available for the amazing children and families who need it.
Tom and their three children Sonny, Maisie and Sol are clearly very supportive of Juliette’s Marathon challenge and are accompanying her on training runs as much as possible on their bicycles. Her dedicated running partner however, is Indi, one of her black labradors, so do keep an eye out for them both as they run the streets and paths of Milford over the forthcoming weeks.
Juliette is hoping to raise £3,000 for Naomi House and would warmly welcome any sponsorship in support of her marathon and the Children’s Hospice. If you wish to be a sponsor, please click here: www.virginmoneygiving.com/juliettechamberlain
