Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I’m fortunate to be friends with many amazing people. One of them is Lyndon Marquis.  This week, Lyndon fell during a ridge climb in the Lake District. Thankfully, he’d followed the correct procedures and so when he didn’t call back in to say he was home, the alarm was raised. He was found some hours later by the Keswick Mountain Rescue Team and airlifted to hospital, having suffered from multiple injuries.

It’s really hard to know what to do when you want to help a freind, but cannot. We cannot make him heal any faster, although I’m sure he’ll appreciate a whip-round for a bottle or two of very fine gin when he’s feeling up to it. But for now, we can say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has been and will be involved in his rescue and recovery. And a special thank you to Keswick Mountain Rescue Team.

Lyndon raised money for Mountain Rescue himself earlier this year, but now it’s our turn to do it on his behalf. I am running the Abbey Dash in Leeds this Sunday and now I'm going to run it for the Keswick Mountain Rescue Team to say thank you. So, if you can spare a few quid, I’d hugely appreciate it.
