Paul’s fundraising feat continues despite London Marathon delay

With the London Marathon postponed until 4th October, a number of marathon-wannabes are continuing to raise much-needed money for charities who are suffering as a result of Coronavirus lockdown. Our Practice Manager, Paul Lockhart is among them.

London Marathon postponed

The London Marathon was originally due to take place on Sunday 26th April, so, instead, 41-year-old Paul, who is raising funds for Headway – the brain injury charity, tasked himself to run 26 laps of his garden whilst in lockdown at home. He was joined by his daughter, Amber, who was more than happy to join her dad.

Amber said “I loved running round the garden with Daddy, it was great fun, but really tiring.”

Despite the news that the marathon has been postponed, Paul remains upbeat; 

“Many people across the country took part in the new 2.6 Challenge on Sunday, so we thought, to stay safe, we would do something a little different in honour of the marathon and run 26 laps of our garden” said Paul.

“This lockdown is bringing with it a silver lining – to get over some injuries I have suffered and now I am focused on using the extra time to raise as much money as possible for Headway. Thank you to everyone who continues to support me and the fantastic cause.”

The effort was filmed live via Paul’s Facebook page.

So far, he has raised £2,265 – 45% of his new target of £5,000. To donate towards the cause, you can visit the fundraising page.

This is the first time the London Marathon has had to be postponed since its launch in 1981. The official statement from the organisers can be found here.
