A very special Fund-raiser challenged himself to do one new thing every day for a year after his wife lost their first child and on the 366th day he’s announced she’s expecting again.
Richard Roberts, 31, and his wife Sian lost their first child due to an ectopic pregnancy. They decided to raise money for charity that helped them by doing one new thing every day. They asked blog readers to donate a penny for each new thing he did, from drinking Armadillo milk to rescuing a piglet. Now having raised more than £2,000, Richard announced he is to become a father.
Richard Roberts and Harriette Goldsmith our Executive Director will be on Sky News’s Boulton & Co 3rd January 2013 lunchtime, Meridian News and The Breeze local radio. Tune in for further news of Richards exploits.
Support The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust by making a donation.
