About Team Evie

We are a charity set up in memory of Evie Johnston, and we operate in Cumbria and across the North East helping sick children and their families.

We support families by providing essential items when they are rushed to hospital; we make lots of donations to multiple ward and medical teams that help to make children?s time in hospital more bearable; we support the work of the fantastic community nurses who help look after poorly children at home; and we also offer a bereavement support service consisting of online support, monthly support groups and more?

By supporting the wonderful work of the Nectar Ambulance Team, West Cumberland Hospital, Cumberland Infirmary Carlisle, The West and North Cumbria Community Nurses, The Great North Children?s Hospital and more we aim to make a difference to those who face similar challenges to those Evie and her family faced?and we hope to make Evie proud.

Great North Run 2019

On Sunday 8th September I will be taking part in Great North Run 2019. As well as wanting a challenge and something positive to aim for this year a big part of taking on the run was about remembering some very special people in my life and hopefully raising awareness of CDH and AAA (more details later). As I am sure many of you are aware 2018 was a difficult year for the Baldwin family and within the space of 6 months we lost two big members of our crew.

My lovely, kind, funny pops Tim Baldwin suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in November. Dad died of an aortic aneurysm and unbeknown to us he should have undergone a screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) when he turned 65. Whilst his aneurysm turned out to be thoracic, not abdominal, who knows if it would have been picked up if he had been screened. So take note all of you men aged 65 or over, or those of you who have brothers, fathers, sons, uncles, granddads, and friends make sure they are aware and get checked for AAA.
More details on link https://www.bhf.org.uk/informationsupport/heart-matters-magazine/medical/all-about-aortic-aneurysm
Our gorgeous and beautiful, Asha Hardas Baldwin fought hard for 5 long months but lost his battle in June. We knew from the 20 week scan that Asha had a Congenital Diaphramatic Hernia (CDH). Whilst spending time in hospital with Asha we became aware of the fabulous Team Evie whom had also lost the equally gorgeous, Evie Johnston and whom ever since have made it their mission to support other sick children and their families. They support 10 different wards and medical teams across the North East and Cumbria (big up the North) by raising vital funds to buy physiotherapy equipment, sensory equipment, comfort items, portable libraries, TVs, iPads and so much more. More info about them and the amazing work they do here https://www.teamevie.org/
So this is where all you lovely people come in….1 It is also now your mission to spread the word about AAA, CDH and Team Evie and 2 Please help me by donating whatever you can to reach my target of £300 for Team Evie. FYI I have used Wonderful for my sponsorship page because unlike JustGiving they do not take 5% of the money raised.

My dad once told me I wasn’t the right build for long distance running (he was right, us Baldwins love our food) so on race day I shall be especially be thinking of him and hoping these strong thighs help get me round the 13.1 miles.
But as with all great athletes I will require a team of people so for anyone who is interested I am currently looking for the following:

-Kind and generous donators
-A support team to cheer me on on Sunday 8th September (in Newcastle)- Pasta eaters to help me carb load in advance of the run-Drinkers to help me celebrate (probably best do the majority of this post run)-Train buddies to keep me entertained on the journey north and then back south-Masseurs to aid those aching muscles

Please get in touch if you can help with any of the above.

Lots of Love to you all and thanks for making it to the end.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
