Marathon pair make [Radio] waves at Enham Trust

Leading Hampshire-based disability charity, Enham Trust, recently played host to 2 enthusiastic supporters preparing to run this year’s London Marathon in April.

The pair, whom have pledged their funds to the charity, visited the Trust’s headquarters near Andover last week, in order to participate in an interview for the Trust’s unique skills development programme, Radio Enham, as well as meet staff, volunteers, and customers; hearing first-hand the life-changing and positive work Enham Trust undertakes, ensuring disabled people nationwide are supported to live independently.

For first time Marathon-runner Lynsey Shulze, supporting the charity in this way was something she felt compelled to do, following support from Enham Trust during a challenging time:

“I was inspired to run the Marathon for Enham Trust as my Mother-in-Law has MS and the charity supported her to find somewhere to live,” Lynsey explains. “I think it’s really important for people living with disabilities and long-term illnesses to be provided with a range of activities and programmes that they can take part in, and learn valuable new skills.

“During my visit to the Trust, I was able to visit Radio Enham, and see just how important this service is to the charity’s disabled residents and customers in and around Andover.”

During his time visiting the Trust, seasoned runner David Tasker– who has taken on the London Marathon 3 times previously, exclaimed he was more nervous about being interviewed on Radio Enham than taking on the 26.2 mile challenge!

He remarked:

“I’m really impressed with the facilities at Radio Enham, and the confidence & professionalism with which the Radio’s broadcasters executed the interview. Although, I must admit, I was more nervous about my interview than about running the marathon.”

All funds raised will go towards the charity’s vital cause; supporting over 8,500 disabled people across the country in the cornerstone areas of their lives, in order to live as independently as possible.
