  • KATE's MAD Marathon!

    So on the 4th January, Sally asked if I wanted to do the Athens Marathon with her to support Josephs Journey . Like any sane person every part of me shouted “What? Me? No way!!”, whilst secretly thinking I bet Joseph would give anything to be able to run a marathon. I spent the next two weeks dedicated to finding real reasons why I couldn’t do any sort of running- having a clicky knee and funny shaped feet featured highly in my list of genuine reasons never to run- ever. I booked myself in for an appointment with Andy Kett who is a physio and works with our local runners, just to give myself solid proof from a professional that my body wasn’t up to it. Sadly Andy found a solution for clicky knee and funny feet... So I searched for the couch to marathon app- but there isn’t one- and began my couch to 5k journey 5 weeks ago. So now my sights are set on completing the Athens Marathon in November ( or something similar if we don’t get in) I’ll post updates on here so you can have a giggle along with me at this ridiculous challenge. xx Kate (Joe's Aunty) ♡

  • October 2021 Update

    Joseph’s Journey – An Update. 03/10/2021 Dear all, at last we have an update for you – we are sorry it has been such a long time since we posted news on Joe's progress. Firstly, Joe moved to Steps Rehabilitation in July this year and during the last 8 weeks, Joe has received a more comprehensive rehabilitation and physio programme. Unsurprisingly, his favourite activity is therapy in the hydro pool! Joe is making some great progress; he is managing oral trials with stage 4 puréed food and a few sips of fluid. He also recently achieved a supported stand with one of the tremendous physio team. The visiting provision at the care unit is a huge improvement from the previous setting he was living in, and he can have frequent visits from his Mum and his family and friends are having the opportunity to spend time with him. Joe is LOVING the company of loved ones. We are delighted to share that Joe was best man at the marriage of his cousin Jake in August and attended the wedding with his family. The beautiful day was filled with smiles galore from everyone! Joe was on the dance floor in his wheelchair and enjoyed one dance with the bridesmaids. Last Friday, the home arranged for Joe and others to see the Para Ice Hockey at Sheffield Arena and of course, Joe wore his Nottingham Panthers kit with pride and a cheeky grin. Joe is working so hard in every aspect of his rehabilitation; he truly is an inspiration. He is working on his speech but currently communicating using an alphabet spelling board. Thanks to all the money raised by his wonderful supporters, we are investing money into technology to assist Joe with his communication and to enable him to be in contact more easily with the world around him. We are working with the medical professionals to make an informed decision on how best to invest the funds raised to support his recovery. We will keep you informed on any future investment we embark on. All the money raised will really help Joe receive additional support to assist him make the progress he is working so hard to achieve. Joe has asked us to say a personal thank you to everyone for all the support, from the bottom of his heart. We are planning our next fundraising for next year and would love everyone to be involved, we are hoping that Joe will be able to participate - after all, we know how much he loves a challenge! Keep following us for more updates, we promise to keep the updates coming more regularly ❤️ JJ’s Team xxx

  • Joseph Flavill | Joseph's Journey

    Out of gallery ♡ We are raising money and have created a community to support Joseph with his treatment and recovery ♡ ​ In May 2020, Joseph was due to attend Buckingham Palace to receive his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Until 1st March 2020 Joe's life was full of Club Hockey, County Cricket, A Level's, Surfing, Skiing. You name it he did it, with passion, energy, and a cheeky grin. On 1st March 2020, 18 years of energy and laughter came to an abrupt standstill when Joe was hit by a car and received a severe traumatic brain injury. ​ This brought us together as a group of family, friends and supporters, with the shared aim of trying to make a difference to Joseph's future journey. ​ READ MORE - KATE's MAD Marathon!

  • WORLD TOUR old | Joseph's Journey

    GET INVOLVED Joseph's Journey Goes On Tour ​ Hi Everyone, ​ On the 23rd December Joseph turned 19, so the fund raising theme for 2021 will be 19…… ​ As of the 23rd December we have all raised a mind blowing £30,724.75. We are totally humbled by everyone’s contributions of time, support and love for Sharon and Joe. Joseph is making small steps of progress and does try to smile at his Mum on their daily FaceTime calls. All of your messages and activity make such a difference to Joe as he is unable to see people in person, keeping in contact is even more of a challenge. ​ Joseph’s dream following his A-Levels was to take a year off and travel, he had many places he wanted to visit – actually he has a huge list! ​ ​ As a team of Joe’s friends and family we are going to travel virtually around the world, taking in his favourite places. ​ We will track our progress and follow our journey on a map of the world. ​ Mileage can be achieved through, walking, running, cycling, horse riding, swimming, skate boarding…. Absolutely anything at all that doesn’t have a motor! ​ We will update weekly on our progress and everyone will be able to update their personal mileage achievements. ​ If we manage to get 25 people signed up and be part of the team, the goal would be an average of 19 miles per week for each person or team/family to get around the world before Joe reaches his 20th Birthday. ​ On route we will celebrate our landmark goals with recipes and cocktails from the various countries and we can use this team event to share with Joe our clips and messages from our virtual travels. ​ You will receive postcards along route 😊 ​ There is no pressure to achieve 19 miles per week, we have picked 19 for Josephs 19th Birthday. This is purely a team event and all miles will add up. For the cyclists amongst the team, they hopefully will be able to achieve a few more than 19 and then the walkers can enjoy a more leisurely challenge! ​ PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE SIGN UP. ​ We are aiming to start on January 1st, 2021. We are just working through a few technicalities of how to run the challenge in the most effective way. Any ideas on this would be really welcome, the running of the website is quite a mission and if anyone techy would like to help us with updates, we would love the support. ​ You could sign up as an individual or as a family or a team, whatever works for you. ​ We are suggesting a donation of £19 to participate, however, this is only a suggestion as everyone has already been so generous with their time and contributions, the key to this challenge is just to join in! ​ Our goal here is to raise awareness for Joe and to be able to share our adventures with him to help him feel connected to all his friends and supporters at this impossible time. ​ Once we have plotted the exact route, we will email you the plan and let you know the best way to collate our mileage. ​ Please email us or message via Facebook and we will sign you up! ​ All the high fives, videos, messages and all the fund-raising activity in the summer was an incredible achievement and Sharon and Joseph absolutely loved following everyone’s activities. ​ We really, really want to start 2021 with this challenge and we need as many friends as possible to come together to make this happen. Who knows, we might get around the world in 80 Days! ​ Thank you so much for reading. ​ Love and best wishes ​ Aunt Sal, Auntie Kate, Sarah and the whole of the JJ Team. XX Here's the route!!
