Virgin London Marathon 2011

Chris ran the Virgin London Marathon’s 26.4 miles in a fantastic time of 3 hours 7 minutes, shaving 20 minutes off of his previous years run for the Children’s Trust. We’re really appreciative of Chris, who wasn’t only born on the same day as Emma, but was also nicknamed Bubble by no other than celeb chef Gordon Ramsey, when he worked with him.

Chris had hoped to complete the run in less than 3 hours but said of the day “I’d hoped to run sub 3 hours after training really hard, but an incredibly hot day made it too hard. I’m still really pleased with my time though”.

All we can say is congratulations Chris, the time you’ve set, and the £680 you’ve raised in doing so is an incredible feat, we can’t thank you enough.

Walk For Emma 2011

The 3rd Annual Emma’s Bubble Trust Walk for Emma took place on Sunday 27th March 2011 to a welfare of walkers, families and dog enthusiasts. A few hundred people showed up for the sunniest ‘first’ day of springs that we’ve had for years to do laps of the Epsom Downs Racecourse, raising hundreds of pounds in the process. Many thanks to all of those that attended and a special thanks to all of the volunteers who helped out marshalling the course and chasing people for their spare change.

£6100 Raised at Ball


First off we would like to thank everyone that attended the 2nd Annual Emma’s Bubble Trust Ball. It’s a testament in such tough times that we could get so many of our supporters along to our big event to celebrate and remember that Every Moment Matters Always. If you’re interested in seeing some photo’s of the event you can do here. You can also view the official photo’s taken by our friends at Pret-a-Portrait by visiting their website www.pret-a-portrait.net and using the code is EBTA11122010!.

A secondary benefactor to the ball is in the fact that it continues to raise vast amounts of money for us and we would like to congratulate all of you in raising the net sum of £6100. We’ve decided this year to hold onto the money so that we can donate a large portion next year to the new Teenage Cancer Ward at the Royal Marsden hospital in Sutton.
