John Mcneill Opportunity Center

Over the next year I will be running for a very special charity called John McNeill.

I have never run in organized events before.  So to raise the needed cash I will be running in a 5K  10K  &  20K between now and June 2019. Starting in Calne, Wiltshire and ending in Swansea, South Wales

A little about John McNeill

John McNeill Opportunity Centre is a pre school for children with a range disabilities and special needs, they provide support for children and their parents, carers alike. They need to raise £16,000 for a bus to transport the children to and from the centre and to their social events such as horse riding, swimming etc from all over Wiltshire and Hampshire. The current bus is coming to the end of it's life and they are in desperate need for a new bus to continue this service or many children might possibly lose out on this amazing centre with no transport to pick them up and drop them home. This is the only place of its kind for miles around that provides these children with the best start before they start school with advice and support to get them to the next stage of their education.

I know this first hand as my son Ethan-James currently uses these facilities. He is non verbal and is on the autistic spectrum.

Ethan doesn't use the bus himself as I take him to the centre myself but nonetheless this bus is critically needed to help so many other children benefit from this service.

It really doesn't matter how much you donate even if its a couple of pound, it will be appreciated.

Thank you for all you support.
