Battling the “Beast from the East”


Gail Emmerson 1Huge congratulations and Thanks to Gail Emmerson who ran a half marathon at the weekend to raise money for the children at Brainhouse. The Hampton Court Half marathon was run on one of the coldest days of the year when the “beast from the east” weather front hit the UK for the second time ! Gail said that the weather didn’t worry her as she spent lots of time on the way around thinking about the children that she was supporting and it fuelled her on. However, her own children and support team who were there to cheer her on were frozen to the bone and we would just like to thank them too for being there and helping Gail to succeed.

Gail has more than doubled the amount that she expected to raise – currently donating over £550 to ACEF. If anyone is inspired to support her further then her Just Giving page is
