Our charities efforts in 2020 are geared around our Key Account Manager, Jackie Giblin, who managed to get a place in the 2020 London Marathon supporting two fantastic, worthwhile charities. As you know, the London Marathon was cancelled for 2020, so Jackie ran the distance locally on 4th October.

Jackie has now raised over £4,500 and we fund matched all donations up to £,1500. The donation page will be open until the end of December 2020.

Message from Jackie

Hi all, I can’t believe it’s five weeks since running the virtual marathon on the wettest weekend of the year!   The amount raised has far exceeded my expectations and stands at over £4k so thank you to everyone who donated to these amazing charities.   The page will remain open until the end of December for anyone who was thinking of making a donation but didn’t get around to it!

I ran a 3-mile route around my local village so had 9 laps to complete and had friends and family joining me on individual laps which were brilliant.  It was going to be challenging, but even more so with the flooded roads and driving rain!   I did have to have to change from running to a power walk on lap 8 to reset my focus as at that point I was tired, cold and wet but that made the last lap really rewarding with a few extra runners and a car and motorcycle escort all the way to the finish line!

A big thanks to everyone who has supported me and the wonderful charities we have supported this year!
