Story

Hello

Thank you for taking the time to visit this page.

I am currently training to run 3 half marathons over three consecutive days on the 8th, 9th and 10th July. The marathons will take place in 3 locations across Loughborough, Leicester and Nottingham. These locations are the home of The Junction Church.

I am hoping to successfully complete this challenge and raise funds for the community event in Loughborough called Summer Madness.

Summer Madness brings together an entire community for a week of activities, laughter and fun. There’s SO much that goes on: three kids programmes, a community café and a crèche for the young ones. Last year we saw over 100 kids get involved!!

The event itself is run by a team of over 40 volunteers (all DBS checked and including many professionals). This team is passionate about serving the local community and making a difference in their town.

We’ve calculated it’ll cost £50 per child to cover everything for the week. That includes the hire of venues, and all equipment and food costs. We would love for you to join with us in serving this wonderful community through your giving.

Summer Madness is happening from the 6-11th August in the heart of Loughborough. Check out the official Summer Madness Facebook page for everything that’s been going on over the last year, and more details about this summer...

Thank you Andrew and my retired training partner Ebby

    Hello, Just a quick message to thank everyone who sponsored me and gave money for a local community event in Loughborough. In total, I raised £890.00 which smashed my £500 target! Summer madness is taking place this week. The community are really enjoying all the activities and food on offer with this continuing throughout the week. Thank you Andrew

    I am still alive! I finished a painful third and final consecutive half marathon in Nottingham this morning. I was around 15 minutes slower than the first two, but the time for completing this run was irrelevant. As they say “No pain no gain”, but it was well worth it in the end! I am really chuffed with the support I have received along the way. The total donations received for summer madness currently stands at £760. This will make such a huge difference for a community in Loughborough. What should be my next challenge?

    It’s getting tougher! It felt like running through treacle at times. I finished the second half marathon in just over 1hr 37mins, 40 seconds slower than the first. One more to go tomorrow, it’s going to painful, but it’s all for a good cause! Thanks for all your support! 👍
