Runners brave the heat to raise over £11,000 for disability charity


Eight determined individuals took part in the widely anticipated London Marathon on Sunday 22nd March in aid of leading Hampshire-based disability charity Enham Trust.

Taking on the challenging 26 mile-long route through the capital city in 23 degree heat, each pledged to donate all funds raised to the charity. All eight runners successfully completed the course, alongside a record high of 40,000 participants.

“I’d like to personally thank every runner who took part in the London Marathon on our behalf,” remarks Matthew Spackman, Income Generation Lead.

“A huge well done and thank you to Andy Williams, Carey Ballard, Fay Bostock, John Cleland, Lindsay Allister, Simon Schulze, Vicki Matheson and Madeleine Vose.

“Running a marathon is a true achievement of endurance and determination, and your fundraising makes a huge difference to the disabled people we support every day – thank you.”

Collectively, this year’s eight runners have so far raised and amazing £11,416.00 for Enham Trust, with further fundraising continuing over the next few weeks.
