Our sincere thanks go to everyone who supported Matt Brook and David Hewett in their marathon effort in April and for all the support you gave along the way. The money has now all been collected and we are delighted to report that £10,898 was raised to support the work of Mind, one of the leading mental health charities. Once gift aid is added the total comes to a staggering £13,200.
We are overwhelmed with the response from so many people – friends, colleagues and so many people who believe this is a cause worth running for – to every one of you thank you very much.
The day itself was quite amazing with thousands lining the route. The weather was warmer than the runners would have liked and with David’s knee still playing up, the decision was made to set a fastwalking pace – and so fast was it that the finishing line was reached in 4 hrs and 54 mins!
David and Matt proudly display their Marathon medals!
