My story

[p]Update Sept 2020:[/p][p]Well I never expected to be running my London Marathon around the street and lanes of Worcester but Covid-19 has certainly changed how the world has been able to do things this year! [/p][p]This year has taught me so much about commitment and resilience, the importance of community and coming together to support one another.[/p][p]Back in March when the county went into Lockdown Worcester Community Trust responded in the only way we know how - to find a way to help local people during one of the most unprecedented periods in recent times. We set up a care package project providing food parcels, wellbeing activities, freshly prepared home cooked meals and weekly wellbeing phone calls to those in our communities that needed it the most.[/p][p]Whilst its not how I envisaged running the Marathon my end cause is still very much the same - to raise money for Worcester Community Trust to enable us to continue to support those in our communities most in need.[/p][p]If you can, please do consider sponsoring me and help the people of Worcester who need the support of the Trust now and in the future.[/p][p]Thank you [/p][p]------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------[/p][p]Wow! What a privilege it is to take on this mammoth challenge of 'running' the London Marathon. To make this experience so much more special, I will be running for the most wonderful charity, Worcester Community Trust. Our charity delivers services for some of the most vulnerable families in Worcester and I am one very proud CEO! Please follow us on our journey, take time to find out a bit more about the difference we make and if you can, please do consider sponsoring me 🏃?♀?❤ [/p][p]If you are interested in donating raffle prizes, or any support at all, please do get in touch. 07341568621, thank you, Ruth [/p][p]www.worcestercommunitytrust.org.uk[/p][p]Thank you. [/p][p] [/p]

A huge thank you and well done for having the perseverance to run, even though the experience of running a Marathon in your own city without the support of other runners is not the same as being in London with all the others. I am completely in awe!!
