To all our Parkside friends and families we hope you are doing okay! I am going to be popping up random happy pictures in the coming weeks. Lets hope time flies by and the Government advice for looking after your health and well-being is useful:
To help yourself stay well while you’re at home:
•stay in touch with family and friends over the phone or on social media
•try to keep yourself busy – you could try activities like cooking, reading, online learning and watching films
•do light exercise at home, or outside once a day

Try and follow what you can…….

Half Marathon Hero!

September 2019

We were delighted to hear from Brad Ennis completed the Winchester half marathon in the rain! Brad who is left on the picture enjoyed the event with Uni friends who were also supporting charities. Brad reports “I managed to raise just over £300 for you guys and I hope this will help in some way or another. I managed to run the whole race in an official time of 2 hours and 15 minutes. Which I feel is pretty impressive if you were to see how hilly it was! Thanks again for letting me raise the money and once again, I hope it is helpful to you guys! I may have caught the running bug and will probably end up doing some more in the near future”

Just fantastic thank you !
