Thank You to the Media

Last week the Macular Society and I said “Thank You” to the media for their help in my 2019 London Marathon Fundraiser. Without the coverage in my local paper, the Bridlington Free Press my story would not have been picked up by BBC Radio Humberside and by Look North (East Riding and Lincolnshire). Following those appearances, I was interviewed on BBC Breakfast on race day, and later by Radzi Chinyanganya during the Beeb's coverage of the race. These interviews alone raised more £5,000.00!

Pictured below, receiving “Thank You” Certificates, are Look North reporter Jill Archbold, and Hayley and Andrew from Radio Humberside's James Piekos morning drive show.

         

 

Next Spring, I am planning to run three marathons for my fundraiser. I’m calling it the “2020 Spring Marathon-A-Thon” and will run the three marathons over a three-month period (March, April, and May) in three countries.

April's race will again be the London Marathon and May will be Edinburgh… they’re already booked. March is still to be decided but will probably be in the USA.

My JustGiving fundraising page is already up and running, so if you’d like to give the campaign an early boost just click here.

Thank you!
