A Mile In Their Shoes

On the 21st March Polly, Sam and Matty ran the Sports Relief Mile along the Embankment in London. It was something of a last minute affair, Polly only having signed up a couple of days before hand, so she only committed to raising £50 for the charity. They all ran the mile with ease, circumnavigating Eddie Izzard (who was running yet another full marathon), and completing it in about 10 minutes. (Polly insists they could have run it faster but there were too many baby buggies in the way.)

Thank you to everyone who sponsored the three of them, we really appreciate your kindness, generosity and support The money goes to support important projects here in the UK and in some of the poorest countries in the world. You can find out more at and if you would like to retrospectively sponsor Polly and the boys you can at . I am delighted to announce that the total raised so far by the three of them is £380. . . so far.

Until next time.

    Hi there, have just come across your blog & love reading about your trials, tribulations, family life etc. I am an Australian who also has MD.

  2. Hi Stephen

    My name is Joanna, and I work as the communications manager at the Royal Brompton Hospital.

    Part of my job here is to write our staff magazine, which is called intouch.

    I am a big fan of your blog (I don't get Twitter, I'm afraid. I'm a bit of a Luddite) and wondered whether you would like to write a short feature (400 words approx) in the first person about your recent experiences in our hospital - about you, your stay, your care, relationships with our doctors and nurses, the building, the food - everything that made an impression on you. It doesn't have to be a 'rose tinted specs' type feature - an honest opinion is fine. We always want to know how we can do things better.

    I would of course give you full credit and a by-line.

    If you email me a I can send you a more detailed brief and some background.

    Kind regards

    Communications manager
    Royal Brompton & Harefield Foundation Trust
