Yesterday we had 14 fantastic people take part in the London 10K Run to raise much needed funds for Best Beginnings.

We’re very proud of our runners who braved an early Sunday morning start and some very hot weather to complete the run. This year’s participants included Best Beginnings Professional Lead, Julie Watson and trustee, Andrew Harris; the fabulous Vivian Goldring – it was her fifth time running the 10K for Best Beginnings; as well as a wonderful team from Northampton General Hospital who work on the Gosset Ward Neonatal Unit.


So far, ‘Team Best Beginnings’ has raised almost £3,500, which is a fantastic achievement. However, it’s not too late to help them raise more- you can still sponsor the runners on their fundraising pages here:

We’d like to say a very big thank you to all of our runners and to everyone who has sponsored them – your generosity is helping us to give babies in the UK the best beginning.

We would also like to say a very special thank you to:

  • Mei Parsons - for her probono support taking photos of the event. Mei is a family photographer.
  • Sylwia Doliszna - for her probono support filming the event - Sylwia is a visiting editor and camerawoman from Poland.
  • Kashia - for supporting Sylwia with the filming. Thank you to Kashia for helping and for introducing us to Sylwia

Sylwia is very kindly editing the footage into films for our runners and our website on a pro-bono basis. When the films are finished we'll create a News Update to share them with you.
