Chippenham Half Marathon


Nick Lemon and four friends completed the Chippenham Half Marathon on September 12th 2010. They raised a grand total of £2,166.66!

 Nick first heard of SOFT when his friend, Mike Harford, lost his daughter Florence (See Mike’s fundraising story).

This is an extract from Nick’s Virgin Giving blog:
I know of 3 people who have had to cope with heartbreaking prenatal diagnoses and who have had to deal with tough decisions. Even as a parent I cannot really appreciate how traumatic such decisions would be, and therefore how vital support organisations such as SOFT are to offer the suitable guidance and counseling required.For those of you that know me, it is obvious to you that I am in no way designed to be running 13 miles so completing this will be a personal milestone for me.  If I can do that and at the same time help such a worthwhile charity then it will have been worth every step.Photographs shows:  Pete Jones, Nick Lemon, Sophie Whitcombe, Adam Fidoe and Matt Jefferies.  Sophie is Adam’s fiancée but the rest of us all work together as accountants at Hanson UK in Chipping Sodbury.
