2 half marathons in 2 weeks

Vicky Doherty and Neil Jackson successfully completed both the half marathons they entered. At Kenilworth Vicky ran the race in 2 hours 11 minutes and Neil in 1 hour 49 minutes. In the Lady Godiva race at Coventry Vicky improved her time by a minute and Neil by two minutes.
All the sponsorship money is now in and they have raised the magnificent sum of £2,252.50.
A truly excellent achievement. The money raised will all go to the RSPB's "Save the Sumatran Rainforest" Appeal. Very many thanks to them both.
