An INCREDIBLE London Marathon 2019!

Team HEN were nothing short of phenomenal in this year's Virgin London Marathon! 

 

Each and every runner did an amazing job for us, battling on through shin splints, aches, pains and even lost toenails (OW!) to finish those 26.2 miles for us. We were bowled over by the efforts everyone went to, not only with the intensity of the physical training, but also their creative and imaginative ideas for fundraising, all on top of juggling work and family commitments. Each of them needs a superhero cape! 

 

So far we have raised over £52,000 and we're still counting! It's just amazing, and we will be able to continue enriching and supporting the lives of those managing ABI with this superb amount of money raised.

 

We will shortly be posting some great photos from this special event so watch this space! If you're interested in running for us next year - get in touch! 

 

Come and see us at Thrapston Charter Fair!

 

We'll have a stand at the annual Thrapston Charter Fair on Saturday 29th June so do pop along and say hello!

 

We are aiming to raise further awareness in that area of East Northants of our services, plus there'll be plenty going on. The high street will be closed off to traffic and the fair will feature plenty of food and drink stands from local suppliers,  live music and performances, art and craft and all fairground rides will be FREE of charge!
