Host your own Garden Party

This month the first summer garden party was hosted by a friend of Lara’s sister. Alice Kilburn turned her house into a Lara’s Foundation grotto of goodies, and her garden into a summer fete with games, a raffle, face painting and lots of stalls. They raised £408!

Peter Kilburn Coniston Marathon July 6th

Peter Kilburn’s knees faced the challenge of a lifetime as he took on the hilly Coniston Marathon.

Here’s a pic of him cooling off post 26 miles slog!

Pete says:

” 26.2 miles up and down dale in some of the most beautiful and hilly countryside in the UK…..pity i will spend the time looking at my trudging feet! After too much turkey at christmas I signed up to run the Coniston Marathon on the 6th July in the beautiful but mountainous Lake District in North West England. This guilt fueled decision seems like a mistake with just a week to go but I am pleased to say that I am running for a good cause. I am running for Lara’s Foundation, a charity set up after the death of Lara Jones, the sister of a good friend.”

Garden party fundraiser

In June, Alice Kilburn turned her house into a Lara’s Foundation grotto of goodies, and her garden into a summer fete with games, raffle, face painting and paddling pools. The men mainly loitered around the open flame charring sausages and discussing the World Cup, but they were forgiven because in total the day raised £408. A fantastic amount of money and lots of fun. Thank you Alice!
