This charity is incredibly close to my heart. The Royal Brompton were exceptional for my family in the most difficult of days, their expertise and support gave us 7 wonderful months with my brother Jai Richard Burgess.

The staff at the hospital gave us hope, joy and memories that we thought were not possible. My family and I will never be able to thank them enough, so this is a great opportunity to give back to help other families get the same incredible support we received.

I'm taking on a half marathon that has a 2300m ascent across the Birling Gap and looking to raise an ambitious £1000 for this wonderful charity.

Your generous donation will fund innovative treatment, equipment and research at Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, that fall outside of NHS funding.

Many of their projects are not just ‘nice to haves’ but are essential to the lives and wellbeing of patients and their loved ones. From the small but impactful, like camp beds for parents to stay beside their child at night, to bigger appeals such as our Transplant Appeal, funding pioneering technology to give more patients the chance of receiving a life-saving transplant.

With your vital support, they can make a huge difference to patients at their hospitals.

Please help me to support this wonderful charity and give something back.
