TRAINING UPDATE: First of all thank you for your wonderful donations so far.  We are now in week 7 of our various training regimes, all of which are different but each to their own….it has to be that way!  The small injuries either new or old are becoming apparent now, so it’s important to nurse yourself around with big runs at weekends all the way to April 23rd. Iwona is 4 weeks behind the rest of us but glad to say that she is doing well and has a nice 9 miler tomorrow morning, Lee Hilton is trying his luck at 12, Gary and myself 14, I think we are going to see a 10 from Jackie and Nick is engaging a local in Antigua to don his GPS watch and log his runs out there, either that or he has hired a bike.  Ill update you on how we all do after this weekend.

Thanks for taking the time to visit our Virgin Money Giving Page. 

Through Virgin Money Giving your donations will be quickly passed to our nominated charity. Virgin Money Giving is a non profit organisation and claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. 

Our Scott Osborn Team, John and Nick Scott, Lee Hilton, Iwona Pachol, Jackie Byrne and Gary Pearce, are running the 2017 London Marathon to raise funds in support of the Essex Sports Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1001176). 

This fantastic charity have now raised well over £2million to support schools and organisations, such as Riding for the Disabled.  They work tirelessly to provide sporting facilities and opportunities for disabled children including sports equipment, coaching/tuition, the hire of sports halls and fund special outings and adventure holidays to create positive lasting memories for these deserving youngsters.

Paralympic athletes Noel Thatcher and Giles Long who both received support from the foundation, won Gold Medals at the Paralympics in Atlanta and Sydney and were quoted as saying the medals were a testament to the magnificent work the foundation does for the young and disabled.

Taking part in sport not only increases a child's self confidence but it also helps with their physical development and self esteem too.  As a child moves into adulthood it can also help them to deal with any challenges they may face in later life.

Please help us reach our target of £30k for this wonderful charity.  Together we can ensure more deserving young people continue to benefit from their support bringing smiles and happy memories to last a lifetime.

We thank you very much in anticipation of your support.

John, Nick, Lee, Iwona, Jackie & Gary
