Our walkers...

Gemma and her family took part in a walking event after Gemma stayed with The Sick Children's Trust twice when both her babies were born prematurely.

Gemma says: "Crawford House made life so much easier for us as a family, not once, but on two occasions. My son Benjamin was born early at just 25 weeks and 5 days. We spent nearly 4 months at the house while he gained his strength until he was well enough to be discharged. Then my second little one Jacob also arrived early at just 24 weeks and 1 day. This time we spent 108 days in the house. The charity's been a lifeline which has kept our family together.

"We had a wonderful time on the day. It was great fun and a brilliant way to give something back to the charity which has done so much for us."
