Emily, Neve's mum, who ran Oxford Half in 2021

“The support from Helen & Douglas, in the run up to the race and on the day, meant that I knew how precious and appreciated our fundraising was and what a difference it really was making, to children like Neve and families like ours.”

Why should you run for Helen & Douglas House?

Max is 11 years old and lives in Swindon with his Mum and Dad and sister Eva. Max has been coming to Helen & Douglas House for 5 years for respite care because he has end-stage renal failure and a mitochondrial disorder. Read Max’s story.

Claire Max’s Mum said ‘If we didn’t have Helen & Douglas House our lives would be much tougher and we wouldn’t have a rest. When we stay there we feel relieved because we know life will get a bit easier. We need these days to recharge to ensure we can give Max all the care he needs.’
