Fundraising efforts for Hannah's Fund have continued in 2019 with The Havanna Night event in April raising £1,700. This autumn Hannah's sister Lamorna and cousin Alex ran the Plymouth 10K with a group of friends and raised £600. This is also a variety of things to buy, see the Things to Purchase page.
In 2018 Hannah's eldest brother took part in a Triathlon with Gilly Slater followed swiftly by the Plymouth Half Marathon the following weekend! Josh was joined by Hannah's sister Lamorna Lindfield and Archie, Imo & Luke Dawe for the Plymouth Half. Needless to say the support crew of Mili & Mark were out in force for both events along with Ollie & Jazz for the Triathlon!
The largest ever 'Team Twerp' (so called in memory of Hannah's grandfather Tim Burbury who affectionately called all his grandchildren Twerp) were ready in March 2018 for the 6th year to run the Bath Half Marathon but sadly the race was cancelled due to snow. This event has become a signature event for Hannah's Fund as in 2014 Hannah joined the team for the final mile.
The big fund raiser for 2017 was The Masquerade Ball held in April that year and which raised over £8,000. As well as the 2017 Bath Half Marathon four members of Team Twerp took part in a Canalathon - paddling 6 miles, pedalling 22 miles and running / walking / stumbling 7 miles in VERY varied weather. The team was made up of Ned, Katie, Gus & Punch Maughan with crew support offered by JimBob Maughan!

Massive thanks to Lee Varney and Frances Wilson who organised the concert and to Corinne Morris, Fenella Humphreys, and Natasha Hardy, who gave up their time and their professional fees to help us make the evening a success.
