Hope for Children is an international charity that passionately believes every child has the right to a happy, healthy and positive childhood.
Almost half of the world’s children are vulnerable and living in poverty. We are changing this by making a safe and fulfilling childhood a reality for more of the world’s children.
We are improving their access to education and healthcare, empowering their families to support themselves whilst developing their confidence and self-esteem. Most importantly we are giving them hope.

Dr Blackwood has undertaken both the Edinburgh and London Marathons to raise money for Hope for children, and once his daughters are old enough, plans on returning to training so that he can compete once more for such a great charity.
