We are honoured and very lucky to have Liam Roberts running the Cheltenam Half Marathon with 2 friends, Chris Smith and Joe Ballinger. They are all running the Half Marathon for their chosen charities, Liam is running to raise money for all of us here at Haven Day Cantre in memory of Barbara, his Auntie. Barbara was a much loved character where ever she went, she always had a smile on her face and we are so pleased that we were able to contribute to being one of the reasons why Barbras smile was always so bright. We want to give a huge thanks to Liam and his friends for their amazing act of kindness. The race date is Sunday 1st October and we are overwhelmed following Liams fundraising page, should you wish to share Liams story, donate or leave an encouraging comment to cheer Liam and his friends on please follow the link 

Again many thanks to Liam and his friends and everyone who is taking part to raise money for charities.
