Richard Blake in training for the London Marathon

Published: 8th February 2013

We have, at present, just one Club Member taking part in this year's Virgin London Marathon in April namely Richard Blake. The picture above of Richard was taken at the Paris Marathon in 2011 where he raised money for Cancer Research, he has also done several Half Marathons, including The Eden Project and the Bath Half Marathon where he ran for Macmillan Nurses.

With wife Tamsin as his fund-raising secretary they are raising as much money as possible in support of the MS Trust. Richard has been training hard since September, going out in all weathers and sticking to his schedule come what may! Any support they can get from whatever source would be greatly appreciated, they have so far managed to raise just over £900 from Coffee mornings, a Christmas raffle, a Christmas meal and sponsorshi for which grateful thanks to the many generous people who have already given their support.

Richard can be sponsored in the Pro shop by kind permission of Nick, or by going online to www.virginmoneygiving.com/richardblake where further information regarding the MS Trust can also be found.
