By April 29, 2015 No Comments

Congratulations to our directors Jeremy and Clair who both took on the 2015 Virgin London Marathon on Sunday.

Having completed the Brighton marathon 2 weeks before they went on to complete this World major marathon in just over 5 hours.

Together they have competed in a series of races to raise money and awareness for The PSP Association

This is the second time Jeremy has taken part in this iconic race and was Clair’s first time running the London marathon, she said:

‘This was an amazing experience, the sheer amount of people taking part was quite overwhelming and the support from the crowd was like nothing I have ever seen before, I hope I get the opportunity to enter again, it was made all the better by helping to raise money for, and support, such a worthwhile charity too.’

Jeremy said via his LinkedIn profile:

‘I’m proud to have competed London Marathon yesterday in aid of ‘The PSP Association’; an amazing and memorable experience. What I was blown away by is an event like this brings everyone together, from the 38,000 runners competing, to the hundreds of thousand supporters watching, volunteers, emergency services personnel, with millions of pounds raised for various charities globally. The pure act the human kindness was showcased perfectly yesterday and I was honoured to be a part of it. I’d like to see more of this spirit in business, even politics!’
