Marathon Update

Charlie-Marathon_450

 

You may be aware from our last correspondence that Charlie and his also very fit wife, Mary, were going to tackle the New York Marathon and all in the name of charity, namely Amnesty International. Did they do it? Read more to find out…

Well we’re extremely proud to say…yes they did!

Mary set a cracking pace and didn’t falter the entire way. Charlie, sporting a debilitating injury had to rely on sheer determination to push through and complete the course and even though he’s still paying for it in physio bills, it’s a wonderful achievement.

Before they headed out on their adventure to New York though, there was money and awareness to be raised for their chosen charity, Amnesty International.

Charlie and Mary hosted a fantastic evening at 353 on Cambridge which included a scrumptious three course meal, excellent wine and cheeses and wonderful company.

Incredibly generous people donated wonderful gifts for auction and equally generous people purchased these items on the night. A great night was had by all and their generosity raised a grand total of $9642!

For those of you who came along thank you so much for your continued support, we are extremely grateful.
