Hospice Runners gear up for London Marathon
A team of local runners are set to take part in the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 22nd April 2018 to help raise funds for Southern Area Hospice Services.
Since signing up at the end of 2017, the runners have fundraised thousands of pounds for Southern Area Hospice Services as well as following intense training schedules to ensure they are fully fit when they join thousands of runners from all over the world on the start line in London, one of the world’s most popular marathons.
Southern Area Hospice Services would like to thank the group for their fundraising efforts over the past number of months and wish them well as they take on their challenge. They would also like to extend their thanks to Plumbmaster at Haldane Fisher for their continued support of their London Marathon campaign.
Plumbmaster at Haldane Fisher have been regular supporters of the Southern Area Hospice Services London Marathon Teams for many years now and were delighted to come on board once again this year, kindly sponsoring a set of running vests for the team to wear on their marathon challenge.
Speaking about their sponsorship Gary Cranney of Haldane Fisher said, ‘We have a long standing relationship with the Southern Area Hospice and are delighted to once more sponsor their running vests for the London Marathon, once again under the Plumbmaster brand, our specialist division for the Plumbing & Heating Sector. We would like to take this opportunity to wish the team the very best in London’.
Damian McGreevy of Plumbmaster Newry came along to a recent Good Luck Night which took place for the group at the Hospice to present them with the special running jerseys and wish them well on their way. Damien is pictured presenting running vests to (back row L-R) Paul McGuigan, Neil Dawson, Sarah Doran, Brendan McVerry, Christopher Patterson, Gary Graham, Kevin Morgan, Hamilton Brown, Colm O’Brien, Patrick McEvoy, (front row L-R) Naomi O’Hare, Anne Mac Oscar (Southern Area Hospice), Damian McGreevy (Plumbmaster) and Declan McConaghy.
