As if they’re not busy enough with managing our operations, Roxie and Sam have committed to complete the Bath Half Marathon on the 15th of March, raising money for Bath Mind.
They both enjoy and benefit from the relationship we’ve fostered with Dorset Mind over recent years, and have been involved in more than a few of our fundraising events. About the challenge of the Bath Half, they say, “Being huge supporters of Dorset Mind for a few years we thought this would be a great opportunity to share the love and give ourselves a challenge. These amazing charities get no public funding and what they achieve with donations is incredible. Mental health awareness is something that has made such a difference to many people’s lives over the last four years, but we need to create more awareness so people don’t suffer in silence. We’ve wanted to do a marathon for a while so if we make it round this beautiful city alive we may look at keeping the donations flowing for the next challenge!!”
To even the playing field and entertain us all, Sam will be running in our Cider Head costume. And doesn’t it look spiffing?!
If you see them, either on the course on the day or training in the lanes around Bridport, give them a wave of encouragement and head to their JustGiving page to donate to their worthy cause.
