On Sunday 4th September Suzie ran the Big Half Marathon to raise money for our charity. Suzie has been a Home Support worker with us for just over a year. Since working with us, she said that it has "opened her eyes to just how many lonely, elderly people that there are in houses close to her".
After months of training, 14k runs in the morning before work, running in the heatwave that we had this summer, Suzie got lots of blisters and aches but was determined not to give up!! Running the same race as Mo Farrah and Eilish McColgan, Suzie finished in an amazing 2 hours 17 minutes! Her aim was to finish within 2.5 hours so she was "chuffed" that she accomplished this.
We are extremely grateful to all who donated. Suzie raised an amazing £400. This money will go towards staff training. We like to offer our staff various training courses so that they are well prepared for their daily tasks out in the community. THANK YOU AGAIN SUZIE!!
