18 months ago my beautiful sister Christina and her baby girl Bella were taken from us in the cruellest way. For those of you that know me and my family you will know how this has devastated our lives and the most awful part of all is that it didn’t have to happen.

For a while now I have wanted to do something in the memory Christina and Bella and to try raise awareness of dangerous driving.

To do this I thought that a memorial bench in the park where Christina used to walk her dog every day would be perfect. It’s on Howards Field, very close to where my mum & dad now live.

In the park where the memorial bench will be there will be lots of people passing every day who know about what happened and if it stops just one person getting in a car and driving carelessly or dangerously and this happening to another family then it will make a difference.

The company who own the land have given their permission for the bench to be part of the park and have generously donated towards it.

Alongside the memorial bench I would like to raise money for the Maternity department at Wrexham General where Christina & Bella were looked after that night. Christina worked at the hospital so I know this is what she would have liked us to do.

As a family we have received and still do receive the most amazing support from our friends & family and this will be for all of them too, a place where they go and remember all the happy memories they have of Christina.

I am going to run the Manchester 10k on the 13 July and Sarah is going to run it too. Together we would like to raise money to go towards the memorial bench and also for the Maternity department at Wrexham General Hospital.

We would really appreciate any sponsorship for the hospital and also to create this special place to remember my sister and my niece and to try and stop this happening to anyone else.

Lots of love from Martin and Sarah
