This weekend the Beardall Family should have been taking part in the Liverpool Rock and Roll Marathon weekend. Mum running a half marathon, Eve and Harrison running a competitive 5km and everryone (including Grandad Outram) running a one mile fun run. But it wasnt really ‘for fun’ - through the police force the family were asked if they would support the assistant chief constable of West Midlands Police who is suffering terminal Motor Neurone Disease. They joined a team of police officers and staff in a bid to raise £150000 - despite lockdown and cancellation of the event together the team had raised £16500 - incredible. Eve, Harrison and Thomas are the youngest members of the team and highly respected for their efforts and training across many Midland's police forces becoming something of a mascot. The family took a trip up to Sherwood Pines and ran a ‘competive socially distant 5k’ and a fun 1 mile at Thomas’s Pace. The actual races have been rescheduled for 25th of October. They even got a personal well wish from non other than David Walliams.

Millie has been busy during Half Term: lyrical dancing on Zoom: earning her Brownie painting badge: joining in a charity day with her dance school with lots of activities via zoom including craft and baking to raise money for the NHS; and taking a common exception word test. Fantastic work Millie
