Jessie May Trust 2015 Events diary – could you get involved?

February 23, 2015

Jessie May, Children’s Charity in Bristol

Created by a family for families

Jessica May died at home aged 4 1/2 months surrounded by her family and supported by a team of nurses. Her parents created Jessie May to ensure that every child who is not expected to reach adulthood receives nursing care within the home. Since 1996 we have been providing this care, free of charge, in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Bath Half Marathon

Location: Bath

Entry fee: £42

Sponsorship target: £175

Could you run the Bath Half for Jessie May?

The Jessie May Trust is looking for intrepid runners to join Team Jessie May for the Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 1st March 2015!

The Vitality Bath Half Marathon – or the ‘Bath Half’ as it is affectionately known, is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK. It is also the largest charity fundraising event in the South West region, raising over £2.0 million for charity last year alone. The course itself is fast and flat making it suitable for all abilities – for beginners whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long-distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time. It covers a two lap 13.1 mile (21.1km) traffic-free course straddling both sides of the River Avon. The race starts and finishes in Great Pulteney Street, in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath.

We need your support now for Team Jessie May to help us develop our vital services supporting families with children affected by life limiting condition across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Bath & North East Somerset.
