beckyBecky Fortnam, a Speech and Language Therapist in the Children’s Complex Care Team, is running in the Cheltenham Challenge Half Marathon this Sunday, to raise funds to support Children’s Services at the Trust.

Becky, 25, has been part of the team for two years, working out of the Rikenel Health Centre in Gloucester, the Coleford Opportunity Centre and the Heart of the Forest Special School.  

Becky said: “I see about 25 children a week with some very complex needs and taking part in this challenge to raise valuable funds for items beyond our NHS budget, is just one more way I can help them.”

So far, Becky has raised about £200. You can support Becky and Gloucestershire’s children’s community health by visiting her Virgin money fundraising page below.
