Fiona said.. 'I'm running a marathon! Yes, it's long been on my bucket list and every year when I watch the London Marathon on the TV I boast that one day I'll do it and that day is finally upon me! I was lucky to get a place running for Pendleside Hospice which I am very happy about as it is really is an incredible place which does so much for our community. Recently, having had the pleasure to work with the Hospice, I found out that it takes over £3.5m of funding to run it every year - that's a staggering amount! So, every penny raised makes a huge difference. Now to my running...I'm a plodder, so this will be no easy feat. Training is underway and I'm up to 8 miles...just need to times that by 3 and a bit and I've made it! I started my fundraising by offering 26 memory mile donation spots and they have all been taken - absolutely blown away by the generosity of friends and family so far.

James said 'I've always wanted to participate in the London Marthon and to do it and raise money for Pendleside Hospice is a fantastic opportunity'. He continued, 'we have all lost loved ones and know what a great job the hospice and every hospice does for our loved ones. As a result of Covid-19 all hospices have suffered financially so this is my chance to help send some much needed funds their way'.
