A team from Fidelity is running in the London 2013 Marathon on Sunday 21st April in aid of the children’s charity Sparks . The Fidelity runners are Nancy Court, Simon Payne, Cristian Siminea, Alan Shraga, Kat Ward ably supported by Becky Shraga and her boyfriend Nils Mundy. Please visit https://www.justgiving.com/teams/FidelityGroupMarathonTeam to make a donation, either to all of them or one of them. All the money raised will go to Sparks a UK based charity which funds life-saving medical research into conditions affecting babies, children and mums-to-be. It aims to improve the quality of life for children and families affected by serious illness or disability today, whilst seeking ways to better diagnose, treat and prevent these conditions in the future.
Vanessa Hearn from the Loddon Brewery is also running the marathon and for the third time, but for the first time on her time!! She is running in aid of Arthritis Research UK in memory of her father. The brewery have already held a very successful Open Night where they raised £1,600 to support Vanessa's efforts, with the total now up to £2,200
The third runner from our best of Henley community is Julian Walker, director of AB Walker. Julian has run the London Marathon before and is running in aid of Sue Ryder Netledbed and Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent House.
