Stuart takes up a marathon challenge to raise money for the Peter Le Marchant Trust

Watch Stuart talk about his preparation for the London Marathon.

Stuart Teare will be pushing himself to the limit when he takes part in the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon to raise funds for the Peter Le Marchant Trust.

Stuart will be swapping pints with friends in the pub for chilly evening runs around South London as he puts in the necessary preparation for one of the world’s most famous running events.

On cutting back those pub visits Stuart says:

“Those who know me well will fully understand how much of a difficult task this will be due to my hatred of running and my love of alcohol!  But, due to my big mouth and a moment of madness I agreed to sign up and run!!”

It’s personal for Stuart as his dad Richard is the CEO of the the trust:

“The Trust offers fantastic experiences for the disabled and seriously ill, for children, adults and families who are living with disabilities. It is a Trust very close to my family; as in early 2014 my father took on the role of C.E.O.”

Please sponsor Stuart and help him reach his target of raising £5000 for the Trust.

A Massive Boost from Fisher Scientific

The Trust has recently received hundreds of pounds worth of marketing support from a local laboratory supplies company based in Loughborough, through linking with Loughborough based ‘Fisher Scientific’ as part of the company’s Community Action Council.  The corporate initiativewhich donates skills and resources to the local community has provided much needed marketing materials and a complete re-brand, following our recent Queens Award for Voluntary Service and achievement of incorporated status. 

“We’ve been providing support to local people for over 35 years and to receive this level of practical assistance from a huge company like Fisher Scientific is fantastic” says Charles Grace, CEO. “The support we receive from volunteers is tremendous, but the new marketing materials have given us an extra boost at a very significant time”.

Emily Quinton, Marketing Communications Manager at Fisher Scientific adds “It has been a privilege for my team to work with such a brilliant, local charity and hopefully we can be a leading example of the positive impact that big businesses can have on their community”.
