Harriers running Marathons for charity

Mark’s Marathon Challenge (update.... 2 down, one to go !!)

In April, Mark Godden is running three marathons on consecutive Sundays in aid of the Rossendale Trust. They are Manchester on the 8th, Brighton on the 15th and London on the 22nd. You will be familiar with the Trust through the support we give them via the Langley 7 every year. It provides Supported Living care to adults with learning and physical disabilities. The sponsorship money he raises will be used to support their ‘WorkTaste' placement scheme, which enables the Trust’s tenants to gain experience of the workplace. Please consider sponsoring him in his mad endeavour! The relevant link is given below.
