London Marathon 2017 – thank you to everyone who donated to Share
We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated towards Share trustee Phoebe Scriven's bid to run the London Marathon. With your help, Phoebe raised £2690 including Gift Aid for which we are immensely grateful, and which will help us to provide more fitness and healthy living activities for our students.
And thank you SO much to Phoebe as well for giving her all in the London Marathon. We can't thank her enough for everything she does for Share – her support and commitment to Share over the years epitomises what Share is all about, helping our community to grow to make a difference in people's lives every day.
