Six fundraisers, including Foundation and Norwich City FC staff, run the Virgin Money London Marathon

Six fundraisers took on – and completed – the Virgin Money London Marathon yesterday, raising over £7,000 for the Foundation in the process.

For most of the charity’s team, which included Foundation staff Simon Lappin and Nick Bond, Norwich City FC’s Clive Cook, Emma Lowe and Chris Domogalla, and charity supporter Fran Brown, running a marathon was a lifetime first.

Covid-19 cancellations meant that the race date was shifted twice, but for all involved the experience was well worth the wait. Buoyed on by enthusiastic support and perfect running conditions, all of the Foundation’s runners finished the 26.2 mile historic course in under five hours.

Emma Fletcher-Dungay, the Foundation’s Senior Fundraising & Events Manager, said: “We really can’t thank our team enough for their incredible efforts – both during the race itself, and also for the countless hours of training required beforehand.

“They really did us proud – it’s a mammoth undertaking, and for over £7,000 to be raised from it all is amazing.”

The funds will be used to support the Foundation’s work across Norfolk, across our themes of driving inclusion for people with disabilities, boosting mental health & wellbeing and inspiring disadvantaged people.
