London Marathon Sponsorship (26th April 2020)
DIY-Investors.com is delighted to be able to sponsor Sian Powell, as she takes part in the London Marathon on 26th April 2020. Sian is raising funds for the Severn Hospice – in memory of Pat Williams, who sadly passed away last April, after a courageous 10 year battle against breast cancer. Pat helped me with the book-keeping for my company accounts, since I relocated to Shropshire. Meeting Pat, I was immediately struck by her dogged determination and courage in adversity.
Sian has just received her T-Shirt (pictured) for the event and we wish her well, as she continues her training… battling the elements (storm Ciara etc), preparing for this gruelling challenge!
In a recent press interview, Sian explained that, as part of her fundraising for Severn Hospice in preparation for the London Marathon in April, she has sold memory ribbons dedicating each of her 26 miles to someone’s loved one for a donation.
The ribbons will be tied to her shirt and she said she expects the day to be quite emotional.
“It will be a year and a day since Pat died when I run the marathon,” she said.
“It will be a tribute to such a brave person.”
At the date of writing this post (11th February 2020), Sian is 87% of the way towards her fund-raising target of £2,000. If you’d like to support Sian in this very worthy cause, please go to her Just Giving Page HERE and make a donation.
