Becky Fortnam, a Gloucestershire Care Services Speech and Language Therapist, is the first NHS staff member to sign up to tackle the Cheltenham Challenge Half Marathon on Sunday, 18 June, 2017 to raise money for the Children’s and Young People’s NHS service in Gloucestershire. Becky, 25, has been part of the Children’s Speech and Language Team for two years, and primarily works with children with complex needs and Learning Disability. Becky works at a variety of places within the Gloucestershire community. Becky supports children and young people at Rikenel Health Centre in Gloucester, Coleford Opportunity Centre and the Heart of the Forest Special School. Becky said: “I see a range of children each week with a variety of complex needs. Taking part in this challenge to raise valuable funds for items beyond our NHS budget, is just one more way I can help both the children and staff I work with.” You can support Becky and Gloucestershire’s children’s community health teams here.
