A Bath Half laugh!
A brilliant effort by Ella Brown and Louise Kirk who sound as if they had a great time running the Bath half-marathon on March 2.
Huge thanks to them both and to everyone who supported them – they’ve raised a tremendous amount of awareness as well as funds.
Ella wrote: “Louise and I took on the mammoth task of running the Bath Half. 13.1 miles was a daunting task having never been regulars at the gym! It was a lot of fun, with a really great atmosphere on the day.
We’re so grateful for all the support we received from friends and family and have managed to raise over a thousand pounds, which was far above our original expectations.
Hopefully in running we managed to raise further awareness for a really fantastic charity and hope the money we have raised will help them continue their great work. We’ve definitely got the running bug now and are hoping to keep on running and raising money – and hopefully we’ve encouraged others to do the same!”
