Poppy's mum Vicki was running the London Marathon to thank Hope House for caring for Poppy and to raise money to help even more children and families. 

Covid-19 has put a stop to that, so instead Vicki will be running 100 laps of her garden - 2.6 miles - and she'd love as many people as possible to join her by doing something in their own homes. Are YOU up for the challenge?

Your help and support has never been more important to us - every penny you raise will help us provide vital care and support to Poppy and many children like her, now and in the future.
