Fundraiser of the week: Franco de la Croix-Vaubois

February 23, 2018

There's just over a week to go until the Bath Half Marathon, and our Fundraiser of the Week is feeling fighting fit.

"I have been doing my training two or three times a week to build up stamina," says Franco de la Croix-Vaubois, who has already smashed his £250 fundraising target. "It's going OK, thanks to my coach Daisy that is egging me on."

Daisy is Franco's daughter, and she has had M.E. for three years now. "I knew nothing about it before, and it is really tough on people affected," he says. "Not much is know about it, it is widely misunderstood and unrecognised."

We say a huge thank you to Franco - and Daisy, for cheering him on - and wish him the best of luck when he takes on the Bath Half next Sunday. You can read more, and donate, at Franco's Just Giving page.
