Sheryl said ” I have trained very hard in the run up to the race and I hope that the hard work will  pay off and that I am able to donate as much as possible to the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.  I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the incredible support from my partner Steve, friends, family and our fabulous customers.  I would  like to extend a huge thanks to everyone for keeping me going.”
