Nate is an extraordinary 8 year old who is the son of one of our friends and clients and when we heard what he was doing in memory of his friend Tobi who sadly passed away in January, well it just blew us away.
We'll let Nate and his mum tell you more:
"Hi, my name is Nate and I'm 8 years old. I live in Staffordshire with my Mum and Tom and my dog Cooper. I want to raise money for Birmingham Children's Hospital and Charity because my friend Tobi has been there for a whole year and they have looked after him. I want to help them get some special ambulances for all the poorly children. I am going to do one challenge every month in 2019, for each month Tobi has been poorly."
"Nate has been feeling a little helpless that his friend is so ill and has decided he wants to raise money to support Birmingham Children's Hospital who have cared for him for the last year.
Tobi was taken ill in January 2018 and has spent months having hundreds of invasive tests to try to find the cause of his Eosinophils (white blood cells) being so high. In October Tobi took a turn for the worse, resulting in him going onto life support. He remained on the Intensive Care Unit in a highly critical condition until the 19th January when he passed away held by his Mum and Dad, surrounded by the love of his tribe.
It has quite literally been the most challenging year for Tobi and his family, and to reflect this Nate wants to take on 12 Challenges, one each month of 2019.
Please help him reach his goal and donate to a wonderful hospital who help so many poorly children each and every year.

The final charity we will be supporting this Sunday for our Annual Charity Open Day is the awesome Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and what a great year it's going to be for them celebrating their 50th anniversary 🎉🎉🎉
I'm sure we've all enjoyed a stroll up at the Roaches which they took over managing a few years ago. They are doing some awesome work up there improving the paths and access so we can enjoy them for many more years to come.
