With less than 2 weeks ago until the Northampton Half Marathon we would like to introduce you to our two newest members of Team Home-Start Northampton.
As well as being a busy mum to four children, Liz is a volunteer with Home-Start Northampton, Liz says...
'I’m Liz and this is my first half marathon. Not quite sure what I’ve let myself in for!! I’d love to be able to raise some money to help an amazing charity which has helped so many local families with young children who are in need of a little extra support. '
Nicola is the long suffering running buddy of Kerrie (one of our coordinators) who has nagged her into running for us. Nicola has previously volunteered for another local Home-Start scheme and is delighted to be able to support us with our fundraising.
Please support either Liz or Nicola if you can by sponsoring them at:

We have had a busy and exciting summer of events for our families, one of these was our picnic in the park. We have been really lucky to have received funding for this from Shoosmiths Northampton. This enabled us to have an entertainer Nickys Fancy Faces Parties- Childrens parties who was fantastic, and provide all of the families with a tasty picnic lunch. We had eight lovely, enthusiastic volunteers from Shoosmiths come along and help make the day perfect for our families. They dressed up as pirates and the children all went on a treasure hunt, braving their way through shark infested waters to gain their outfits to become a pirate. A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped on the day. #celebratenorthampton ... See MoreSee Less
