How often does someone sign up for the London Marathon when they've just started a new job? Not very often! We are very proud of Lucy Francis who has done just that. She is our new Assistant Psychologist. Think of her pounding the pavements and training in the early hours before a day of rehabilitating kids at Robbie's Rehab. Hero!
Please support her!

Robbie's Reindeer Run took place last weekend. This annual event brings more and more runners wearing antlers every year for kids with brain tumours! With thanks to Charlotte Jones - pictured below for organising the nucleus of the runners: the @Edgeborough community - some of whom are shown below. Thank you Charlotte! ... See MoreSee Less
It was an amazing event to support an amazing charity! Looking forward to 2020 already!
Well done Charlotte & all your runners. Xx😘
Imo’s done it again! Not for the first time, Imo Young has raised money for Robbies Rehab - this time running the Cardiff Half Marathon. Here she is (left) at the start - only looking slightly less fresh at the end and having run it pretty quickly. Well done Imo and thank you for all you are doing for kids with brain tumours! ...

"Robbie's Recital" was a marvellous concert at Brambletye School where Robbie's Rehab is Charity of the Year. Bands, choirs and the orchestra joined in a fantastic and varied celebration of music. The whole-school rendition of 'Wind Beneath my Wings' was a resounding and uplifting finale. Thank you to musical director Peta Andrews and to all the school's talented young musicians for helping kids with brain tumours! ... See MoreSee Less
Susannah is at it again! Not content with her previous rowing glories for Robbie's, she is now at it again with the truly heroic Legs 11 challenge.
Good Luck Susannah and look after those pins!

Ex-headmaster and current chairman of IAPS Chris Davies has amazed everyone at Robbie's not only by leaping out of a perfectly good 'plane for the charity but by also ensuring the plane was in Robbie's Rehab's colours! Conquering any lingering vertigo, Chris executed a perfect freefall and has lived to tell the tale. Chris is a long supporter of Robbie's and we salute his daring. If you would like to support Chris, please do so at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/robbiesrow ... See MoreSee Less

170km non-stop - The Ultra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB). Are you kidding? Spare a thought for Charlie Whelan who will be embarking on this world classic ultra run this Friday. Charlie - whose son Liam was one of Robbie's best friends - is no newcomer to ultra running. He is a seasoned endurance athlete having come third in the St. Oswald's 100-miler. He has been to the UTMB before but tore the ACL in his knee. Despite this he finished.
Charlie will face the ultimate in exhaustion and will have to call upon all reserves of energy and experience even to finish however - he is, as ever, going for a Personal Best!
Please support him and kids with brain tumours here:
Thank you Charlie and Good Luck! ... See MoreSee Less

Well I got round. David thank you for seeing me at the finish. That was lovely! Sorry if i was a bit spaced out
Charlie is going great guns. He’ll hit Courmayeur around 9UK. That’s the other side of Mont Blanc. Follow him on UTMB Live
Great stuff David!! Just having my final plate of pasta. 1238 is my number if you spot me
Best I run round it!
Cracking effort! Good luck!
