    Mon, 05/20/2019 - 10:39

    Huge Congratulations to FRU's runner who completed this year’s London Marathon. Hamish completed the marathon within an amazing 4 hours 52 minutes, especially considering he had only completed the Brighton Marathon two weeks prior within another fantastic time. 

    Hamish did amazingly well with all his fundraising efforts.  We are grateful for all the hard work he put in to training and for raising a very impressive £1212.  Let’s see if we help him acheive his £1,500 target.
