All power to Will

 A wonderful friend to Happy House, Will Gordon has again smashed a half-marathon to raise much needed funds for our family.
He made the distance in the Leeds Half Marathon yesterday with a time of 1:58:58
Not content with one endurance test in 2017, Will set himself a challenge of two half-marathons with the aim of raising £2,500.
And although his second half-marathon, the Great North Run, isn't until September thanks to his amazing family and friends, he has already banked £2,096!
Will is a half-marathon veteran, having  completed the same run in both 2012 and 2015 to raise money Happy House.
Will and his family have been supporting our family since they first visited the Happy House way back in 2009.  
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, of Thorner, Leeds,  returned for another visit in 2013.
Thank you Will from all the the Happy House family, you are an absolute star for always going the extra mile - you certainly deserved that pint!
Many thanks also to everyone who has sponsored Will, every penny you have donated will go directly to improving the lives of children in our care
