Our valued colleague Rosie has completed the London Marathon, achieving an official finishing time of 4 hours and 41 seconds!

What makes Rosie’s achievement even more remarkable is her incredible fundraising effort. While Rosie was fortunate to secure a spot through the marathon’s ballot, she went above and beyond by setting a fundraising target of £500. In a true testament to her dedication and the support of her community, Rosie surpassed this goal with flying colours, raising an astounding £1731 (with more donations still coming in).

But Rosie’s marathon journey wasn’t just about personal accomplishment—it was about making a difference. With a commitment to giving back to her community, Rosie dedicated her run to supporting Manorlands, a local hospice that provides care for individuals and families in need.

Reflecting on her marathon experience, Rosie said:

“I wanted to raise money for a local charity to try and help make a difference. I dedicated the run to all those that have ever had family or friends that have been cared for at Manorlands.

The day its self was one of the most unforgettable days of my life. The atmosphere and crowds were amazing and definitely spurred us on to the finish line. It is an honour to raise money for such a worthy charity.”
