VIDEO: Mums dress up for charity run in memory of Southwater couple’s son

Waiting for Video...

If you spot a large chicken, rabbit and sunflower running around Horsham on Friday March 21, please don’t be alarmed.

A group of mums from Horsham and Southwater will be dressed up and raring to run with the hope of raising donations of Easter eggs for seriously ill children at the Evelina Children’s Hospital in London.

The colourful characters will be starting their 5km run at Chennells Way at about 7pm.

The runners have encouraged anyone interested to join the race, cheer them on or donate an Easter egg.

Entrants can walk, jog or run, but must donate an Easter egg to race.

There is an Easter theme, but a yellow T-shirt is enough to get into the spirit.

Southwater couple Jo and Dave Taylor’s son, Joseph, was cared for at the Evelina before tragically passing away two years ago.

Great Ormond Street hospital often gets widespread publicity, and the family feels the Evelina provided such wonderful care that they would like to help raise their profile.

The Taylor family have this year welcomed the arrival of another baby, Elysia, and will be taking any chocolate or Easter craft donations to the hospital for the sick children and their siblings during their hospital stays.

The siblings of sick children go under immense stress and are often overlooked.
