Our Marathon Man!

by Jackie Snape

On 26 April 2015 Sean Nicholson, who works for Nuffield Health at the gym near our office in Harrogate, will be running not only his very first marathon – but none less than the London Marathon, to raise money for us!

Sean heard about the difficulties that people that live at our residential home are having in booking wheelchair accessible taxis to enable them to get out to college, shopping, socialising – or anywhere they need to get to and decided that he wanted to help to raise money for a new vehicle for us.  he has ben training hard and we see him most days out for a run, in all weathers.
