there, I am Jake. My girlfriend is Lucy who you can
see in the picture below. Sexy isn't she ?
favourite place to visit is Stowe Gardens near
Buckingham. Stowe is part of Te National Trust. Lucy
and I love Stowe, there are so many trees to check
out and a never ending things to sniff at.
Lucy and I want to invite you to come to Stowe
and join us for a treasure hunt. It is all happening
on Sunday 13th May 2018. We will be there to meet
you at 5.30pm with the treasure hunt running from
6pm to 7pm. bring your two-legged friends to help
you find the treasure.
Lucy and I have sorted out a lot of our toys we
do not play with any more, they will be part of the
treasure in a box you can pick up when you arrive.
There will be a bag of doggie treats for everyone
and, of course, a supply of poo bags.
There will be a BBQ for your two-legged friends
but Lucy and I will make sure there are some doggie
sausages as well.
After the treasure hunt there is to be a disco in
Stowe's Temple of Concord and Victory. If your
two-legged friend wishes to dance we have a special
doggie crèche where we can play.
The treasure hunt is FREE to come
along to and is open to non National Trust Members.
If you have fun, if you enjoy yourself Lucy and I
ask that you make a donation to help the work of
Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham.
We are hoping that one hundred
and fifty of our canine friends come along. If each
were to donate just £2 that would send £300 to help
Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham care for
families who have a child sick in hospital.
If friends donate £10 each that
would be £1,500 !
You can make
your donation when you register your place using the
form below OR you can wait until after the treasure

May 2018 into your diary, make a donation to Ronald
McDonald House Birmingham then take a moment to read
how your support will be used to love families who
are going through a difficult time with a child sick
December 2013, our then seven-month-old daughter Beatrice
was suddenly taken very ill. My wife Gemma took her to
Warwick Hospital and from there she was rushed to Birmingham
Children's Hospital. She went downhill fast, but the
problem, an intussusception (where the gut telescopes in on
itself creating a blockage), was quickly diagnosed and
Beatrice had to undergo surgery and we spent five long days
at the hospital until she was discharged. On the first night
we travelled home to Cheltenham but it was awful being so
far away. The following nights, we were fortunate to be able
to stay at Ronald McDonald House Birmingham, just a stone’s
throw from the hospital. The staff were welcoming, friendly
and given the varying circumstances of their ‘guests’,
thoughtful and compassionate.
The fact that we were able to save money on travel and
accommodation, but more importantly able to stay by
Beatrice’s bedside then simply walk a few minutes back to
the House, took away so much of the stress. The facilities
were fantastic and it really helped to know that we didn’t
have far to go after a day spent in the hospital. There were
families who had been there for a lot longer than us, but no
matter how short or long your stay, the fact remains the
same: these Houses are invaluable and go largely unnoticed.
The following year, I decided that I would run the
Cheltenham half marathon and raise money as a way of saying
thanks to everyone who helped us that week. I completed my
first in 2014, and have run every year since. This year, I
wanted to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities to
support the wonderful work the Charity does, and in doing
so, raise awareness of the cause. With the support of our
family and friends and the Hospital Staff, Ronald McDonald
House Birmingham helped us through a difficult time.
Whatever gratitude I can show, I will.
Beatrice made a full recovery and is a picture of health,
loving life like any three-and-a-bit year old does. I find
running for a cause always helps spur me on, and the thought
that any donations and awareness I raise could help such a
brilliant charity makes it all the more worthwhile.
