London Marathon

26 Apr 2015

Congratulations to our Chairman, Andy Bailey, who completed the London Marathon in a time of 3 hours 46 minutes.

 

Andy said - 'It was a fantastic day.  You’ve probably heard it before but the crowds are amazing, the stories you hear are inspiring and the atmosphere is truly special.'

 

It helps so much to have that support on the road.  It also helps to have the motivation of a good cause like Barnardo’s to keep you going.  I’m so glad I ran for them.  With my personal connection to the charity, it felt that I had a genuine reason to do all the training and keep running!

 

We met up with the Barnardo’s team after the run and they explained just how important the London Marathon is for them.  It is their biggest fundraising event of the year and enables them to transform the lives of hundreds of vulnerable children across the country.
