Mark and I ran the 10k race through Manchester last Sunday and we are delighted to tell you that with the gift aid added in we have raised around £500 for Mary’s meals which is double our target; thanks to everyone who donated, particularly those from church.
It was a wonderful day albeit a little hot for running however that did make the cold glass of white all the more satisfying afterwards. Manchester was heaving with folk supporting the runners, the great people of our city never fail to put on a good show and the cheers and applause really do help put a spring in your step.
Running rather like a gazelle, Mark made it over the finishing line in 46 minutes; my style is not quite so elegant or indeed fast but I was pleased all the same that I made it in 52 minutes. Maybe next year we can organise a team from Saint Chrysostom’s? we will start canvassing volunteers after Christmas!
