On the 23rd April 2017, ITRM’s Business Development Manager, Danny Hill completed his first London marathon.
Danny was 1 of the 40,000 individuals to pound the streets of London, covering 26.2 miles in total. He ran in memory of a family member and to raise funds for the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice, who provide specialist palliative care to the London boroughs of Bexley and Royal Greenwich. The hospice does not charge for its services and receives only a third of its funding from the NHS, meaning they are dependent on the generosity of others to help them raise enough funds to operate year on year.
In total, Danny raised an amazing £7,170 for the hospice which will be used to support them in providing their services to the local community.
Danny commented ‘I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to run the marathon for the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice. They provide such amazing support to people with terminal conditions and to their families during some very difficult times. Everyone has been extremely supportive and generous. I held events at the office such as cake sales. I also organsied a charity disco and golf day and I’m overwhelmed by the support and generosity everyone has shown. As a result of everyone’s help, I’ve raised a great amount of money for the hospice that will go a long way’.
