Year 6 teacher runs 100km to raise money for ill two year old nephew

Miss Llewellyn, a Year 6 teacher from Bowling Park Primary, is running 100km (62miles!) to help raise money for her two year old nephew who suffers from gastroparesis and intestinal failure.

Jules Llewellyn, a Year 6 teacher from Bowling Park Primary School, West Bowling, is taking part in an enormous challenge to raise money for GIFTUK.

Miss Llewellyn will be running an incredible 100km (62miles!) from London to Brighton on 23 May in aid of her ill nephew, Dylan, who is desperately ill with gastroparesis and intestinal failure. Dylan's life has been seriously affected by the condition, he has had numerous operations and procedures and is now tube-fed. The future is uncertain for Dylan, but his family are hoping that the money raised will go towards finding a way to improve Dylan's health and support other families in similar situations. The challenge will also help to raise awareness of this rare condition.

Jules has already raised an amazing amount of money, but is still short of her target amount. If you would like to donate, please visit
