Please support our Marathon Runners!

Whilst most of us have been getting over our Christmas Cake eating Clare Regale-Day and Colin Russell have been busy training for the Marathon to be held on 24th April 2016.

With our English weather dipping to 1 degrees we cannot thank Clare and Colin enough for their gruelling training programmes. If you see them training along the Thames or over our rural countryside, please give them a wave and a cheer!

Please also follow the links below and support them in helping our young people of Suffolk.

In the meantime, well done to both Clare and Colin and our thoughts are with you!
