Society Staff Take on London Marathon

14 April 2014

London Marathon

Two members of staff from the Society recently took part in the London Marathon.

Both runners joined the tens of thousands of runners from across the world, including Mo Farah, and took on their first Marathon together at the event on Sunday 13th April in aid of their chosen charities.

Thomas James, Finance & Treasury Manager, ran on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK in memory of his uncle who sadly passed away after a courageous fight with the disease.

“After taking part in the Cardiff Half Marathon and beating my own personal best, I decided to challenge myself and take on the world-famous London Marathon,” he said. “I’m pleased that I managed to complete the marathon and I’m grateful to everyone who has helped me reach my sponsorship target of over £2,000.”

Craig Lewis, Marketing Assistant, is a keen runner and looked forward to adding the London Marathon to his list of sporting achievements. Craig ran on behalf of Tenovus, the leading cancer charity in Wales.

Craig said: “I’m extremely proud of my achievement, finishing in 3 hours and 28 minutes, and feel honoured to have raised funds for a charity I feel extremely passionate about. Tenovus work in the heart of the community, providing treatment, advice and support and I’m grateful for the generous donations I’ve received from my friends, family and work colleagues.”

Well done, Craig and Tom!
