Nine runners of the London Marathon who are raising money for The Disabilities Trust have so far raised £6,000 in just one month! Even with the festive period trying to hinder them, this enthusiastic bunch has not let it stop them from working towards their £12,000 goal.

Fundraising Manager, Hayley Wicker-Bradbury said: “I am overwhelmed by their achievement. Their total was at £1,000 before Christmas, so to return from the break to see it at over £6,000 is just incredible. They are all working incredibly hard, to not only train for one of the world’s best marathon courses, but also fundraising for us. The people that we support through our various services are going to be delighted to hear this amazing news. At over half way I have no doubt that they are going to exceed the £12,000 they have pledged to raise.”

One runner, and Head Teacher at one of the services, Jane Jackson said: “I knew I wanted to fundraise for the Trust as soon as I joined. The adults and children who use its services are at the heart of everything it does. I hope my fundraising efforts inspire my pupils as well as contribute to new resources for the school. It’s a big challenge for me, but I can’t wait to tackle it!
