Yesterday our CEO, Draven, and his wife, Sinead, completed a marathon in their tiny London Garden, the same day the actual London Marathon was meant to take place!🏃♂️🏃♀️
Call them crazy, but they were both very inspired by the great Captain Tom and their garden marathon was in honour of our unsung heroes in the NHS. They have successfully raised £1,895 so far 👏🏼♥️
They completed the marathon doing an 8.5 metre lap like two hamsters on a wheel and clocked up nearly 5000 laps over the non stop 6 hours 37 minutes it took them to complete it 😂
They are overwhelmed by the support and the generosity shown – the NHS Charities Together are very deserving 🙏🏼 They only decided to do this on Tuesday last week and a few days later they were live streaming from their garden and trending on Twitter!
Draven said, “It was a very positive, rewarding day and the messages of support saying we brought smiles to people was very humbling.”
They are still open for donations, which are going directly to NHS Charities Together ♥️. If you wish to kindly donate you can do so via Just Giving: Click Here
