Story

One of our parents, Steve Furby, has very generously offered to raise money for us to buy books to support our curriculum to make it engaging and exciting for our children. Please see Steve's story below and support him in any way you can:

I have enjoyed running as a hobby on and off for a number of years, during this time I have completed five half marathons which were enjoyable but very exhausting. However after turning 40 last year I thought it would be a good time to set my sights on a bigger challenge as I have always aspired to run a full marathon. I recently ran the Race at the Base half marathon in Upper Heyford and I finally feel my fitness is now at a level where I can confidently (hopefully) take on this additional challenge.

I've entered the Manchester Marathon which will take place on the 10th October 2021. I have started my marathon training this week which gives me 12 weeks to get myself in shape and ready for the event. I've never undertaken a charity collection for the previous half marathons but given the magnitude of the challenge of a full marathon I thought it would be a good opportunity to raise money for a good cause like our local primary school, Chipping Warden Primary Academy. I feel the education of all children is very important and even more so with the time lost due to coronavirus over the last 18 months, both our daughters attend this school and my son before them. I feel it would be wonderful to give back to the school after the fantastic job they have done whilst navigating such a tricky time during Covid lockdown. I hope to raise £1,000 that can be used by the school to purchase books.

I would like to make a special thank you to:

Banbury Heating Supplies, Hawkins Group, Chipper Carpentry & Cherwell Electrical Supplies for generously pledging to donate £462 between them. These donations are in addition to the target set.

    Sunday marked the end of my training, I might do a couple of 5ks nearer the time however I've been nursing a sore hip and it seems to have really flared up so I will be resting until the event. Everybody has been so generous, I hope we can beat the target by a good margin, its for such a good cause and will benefit all the children at the School. I'm ready for Manchester and will be inspired on the day by the support received from our brilliant local community. My wife will be sharing my progress via Facebook should anybody wish to follow.

    Given today is a bit if a milestone being 4 weeks to the main event, I'm now winding down my training. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that's donated to date, we are now just shy of 80% of the target, which is amazing. Additionally I'd like to thank the local companies that have kindly agreed to sponsor me: Thanks to Banbury Heating Supplies, Chipper Carpentry, Hawkins Group and Cherwell Electrical Supplies, these generous local companies are going to be topping up whatever we raise with an additional £462.

    Today marks the end of my long long runs, I can give my legs a bit of a breather before the main event on 10th October. Would have been nice if it was a little less sunny I’m really not sure where the pace has come from, I was hoping to complete the marathon in 4.45 to 5hrs but on target for a 4.30’ish hrs
