4th September 2015

I'm Jo (the one in the middle!) and I run Pyjama Drama in South Wales. Me and my session leaders Millie and Nessa are three bonkers ladies who thought it would be a good idea to run a half marathon together, in order to raise money for the super-duper Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity!

Everyone loves Roald Dahl’s stories, don’t they? I've read Fantastic Mr Fox and been on Whizz-popping flights around the house with my brother (to the delight of my parents I’m sure) countless times, and so felt a natural affinity to the Roald Dahl’s Children’s Charity. At Pyjama Drama, we too, ignite imaginations of hundreds of children every week in our classes around South Wales and love nothing more than seeing pure joy on their faces (and those of their families), as we embark on our splendiferous imaginary adventures. 

And that got us thinking, what about those seriously sick children who may struggle to find much to be joyful about? Or the unbearable heartache their families must be going through? Wouldn’t it just be incredible if we could make a difference to a family somewhere who is suffering right now? Well, the Roald Dahl Marvellous Children’s Charity exists to make life better for very sick children and their families, so we felt it made perfect sense to do something to support them!

That's why we're  running the World Half Marathon in March 2016 and aim to raise at least £750 for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. Please support us and give whatever you can via our JustGiving page. Not only will it make a huge difference to some children in desperate situations but it will also make our run on 26th March a little more bearable!

Thank you in advance and don't forget - have fun!
