Sarah Littlewood, Laura Scott, John Bysouth and Tony Henshaw all successfully completed the Worksop Hallowe’en half marathon run last weekend. For all concerned this was our first, and perhaps for some last, competitive half marathon. Far from being an easy half marathon this was even in the organisers words, an “undulating” course, although the scenery of Clumber Park help distract from the side splitting pain and blistered feet!
We would like to offer our thanks to all our supporters who have so far helped us to raise £435.00 with gift aid yet to be added to the total for the Eve Merton Dreams Trust. Just to remind our faithful readers The Trust is a Cancer Charity set up to help create a dream or wish for a serious or terminally ill cancer patient in Doncaster.
Tony Henshaw, partner at Kenyon Son & Craddock said:-
“It was a great team effort.”
John Bysouth added:-
“We are delighted to see our efforts have raised the profile of the Charity in our local area and some vital funds to help such a worthy cause.”
Money has continued to pour in even after the event took place. Our donations page is active until 30 November. Kenyon Son & Craddock has pledged to match the final sum raised and we therefore urge anyone who wishes to donate to do so as soon as possible.
So what next for the intrepid four?
Sarah Littlewood was quoted this morning in defiant mood saying:
“This is the start of many. We are now in deep discussions for our next gruelling challenge, watch this space!”
Any suggestions will be gratefully received, and perhaps discarded depending how difficult they are!
