Running the London Marathon for the Fellowship
Last weekend Trustee Simon Bevan and his wife went the extra mile to raise funds for the Fellowship, by running the London Marathon.
This is only the latest in a year of marathons and ultra-marathons which they are undertaking to benefit two charities of which Simon is a trustee: ourselves and the Bromley By Bow Centre, a community centre in London’s East End. Already they have run the Edinburgh Marathon, and next month they intend to take on a 220-kilometre ultramarathon in Cambodia.
Simon said: “We both like to try and keep fit. We know we are better at doing this when we have a target. Making the public commitment to run a marathon like London - for charities that mean so much to us and make a great difference to our communities - means we get up early and get out onto Hampstead Heath or Primrose Hill, instead of having a lie-in!”
Kate and Simon have been training daily with a run on Hampstead Heath. Their target for the year is to raise £6,000 for their chosen charities. Donations can still be made here.
