Will power rules!

Our great friend Will Gordon is putting himself to the test on Sunday when he takes part in the Leeds Half Marathon.
And helping our Happy House will be  his  motivation as he pounds 13 miles of city streets.
Will and his family have been supporting us since they first visited the Happy House way back in 2009.  At the time it was still under construction.
Will said:"I met Sue and Libby - two of the most inspiring ladies I have  ever met. The first day, I visited the Happy House, which was then being built, I agreed to sponsor and committed to helping with fundraising where I could.. 
" I believe that we can all make a difference however small."
Will, his wife Laura and children Luke and Georgia, returned for another visit in 2013 to meet all our family including their sponsor child, Musyoka.
Will, who raised £1000  for Happy House when he ran the half marathon in 2012, has well exceeded that this time as ihis current total is over £1700 in donations from friends, family, colleagues and neighbours in the generous village of Thorner, near Leeds.
Enormous thanks to Will for again going the extra mile, and to all those who are backing him and our family by sponsoring his effort.
Every penny raised will go to supporting and developing our work in improving the lives of children in need.
