I was very pleased to be able to run the London Marathon as it has been a long-held ambition.  I am very grateful to New Bridge for giving me the opportunity, and at the same time to be able to raise funds to support the valuable work that so many volunteers undertake.  I have been aware of New Bridge for many years as my mum is a volunteer and a trustee.


I was able to spend time training and had hoped to complete the run in less than three and a half hours.  The weather was kind, the support from spectators and volunteers was great, and I completed the distance in 3.18.  I was very pleased with the outcome and even more delighted to have raised in excess of £3,450 for New Bridge.
