Fantastic fundraisers
Well done to our marathon runners who raised a staggering £8795 between them.

Our abseil team also did a brilliant job by hanging on from the women's centre to help raise over £2000 towards I.M.P.S. visits for local children.
Jon Jenkins ran the London Marathon in aid of I.M.P.S. and here is his story.

The London Marathon has always been on my bucket list.  I applied unsuccessfully through the ballot, but knowing I may not get a place made plans to run for a charity based at the hospital where I work. They teach basic first aid techniques to primary school children in the area, which seemed like a great local cause to raise money for - I also owed them, as me and my colleagues had kicked them out of their old office and into a smaller one!
The marathon itself was fantastic. There was rarely a quiet part of the route, and having my name on my vest meant that people would cheer my name. All the kids out along the route are either wanting high fives or giving out sweets, so you can engage and smile back at them for a brief moment.
My London Marathon was an experience I will never forget, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the day to anyone.
Jon raised over £2000 for I.M.P.S. and did a time of 3:55
You  can read Jon's story in full here.

Thank you to the fantastic I.M.P.S. abseil team 2016 for giving up their Sunday afternoon to hang out with us.
We are anticipating that they have raised over £2000 towards I.M.P.S. visits for local children.
If you would like to take part next year, please contact us
Team member Mark Statham Associate Chief Nurse said,

" My son Angus  had a fantastic experience doing the I.M.P.S programme.  The chance to do an abseil, something I always wanted to do and raise funds was a perfect opportunity. A great afternoon with friendly people. Many thanks to the abseil team who helped me over the edge."

We really enjoy finding out what our I.M.P.S. students go on to do and have a section on our website to see if I.M.P.S. influenced their life choices in anyway. You can read some of the stories here.  We are always very proud of our students and what they achieve.

Aaron was a pupil at Kings Meadow school in Bicester and attended his I.M.P.S. visit in 1999. He is currently a medic in the Royal Air Force based at its Tactical Medical Wing.  Aaron says "The I.M.P.S training sparked my interest in treating trauma and also to remain calm and collected in chaotic situations."  You can read the rest of Aaron's story here

Oh, he also did the abseil to raise money for I.M.P.S.  Its not too late to sponsor him by clicking on the image or  here.
We have a funding deficit of £7 per child.
Text IMPS£10  to 70070 to help us out.
