Marathon Fundraising Update

As you may know I had a charity place for the London Marathon this year. I chose to run for a small East London charity – The Docklands Settlements who do great work to support my local community. They operate out of 3 community centres in the Docklands area and provide services from after school care through to special needs classes. 

My Golden Bond pledge with them was to raise £1250.

This weekend I collected the last of my sponsorship money and am thrilled to report that I smashed this target and raised £1733.20!

I am delighted to have raised such a huge amount for the charity and know that it will be put to great use.

I want to say a huge Thank You to everyone that sponsored me and supported my marathon fundraising efforts.

    1. I think there were only about 25 of us so it’s amazing that you’ve found me! I bumped into one other DS runner on the way round – around the 17-20mile part we kept crossing over but I didn’t see anyone else on the day. Maybe I’ll meet you when we get invited to their annual bash – September I think they said? Well done on your marathon efforts too. Next year?
