At Christmas Laura, who is twenty decided that she wanted to do something to commemorate the death of her cousin twenty years ago. She bought herself and her father, Sam, tickets to race in the Bristol 10K this Sunday 5th May. Her aim is to raise money for the care of street children, which Romilly’s charity supports. Sam says that it was quite hard to begin with, being dragged outside to train in the wet and cold, but that he is now in peak physical condition. They keen to go.

Miki races in London for Street Children in Africa

I asked Miki Jablowski if she had ever run a marathon. She has. So she knows what it takes. Not only that, but in the last twelve months she has broken her ankle in two places and torn a ligament. If that was not bad enough she has a degenerative spine.   So hers a heroic effort for street children.

Miki feels the fear but does it anyway.

Miki works on the technical side of theatre, lighting and automated scene changing, and is currently working on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest musical, Stephen Ward at the Aldwych Theatre.

Why Romilly?  ‘Because I am very impressed and moved by the work done, by the extremely valid Romilly street children projects ;
because I have seen how large charities spend our money and I can see that small charities use our money more efficiently as their overheads are lower, have few resources – if any – for marketing.  As a result, our support is much more important to small charities.’
