NORFOLK PROPERTY SALES MANAGER RAISES £6,000 FOR DEMENTIA CHARITY AFTER COMPLETING FIRST EVER MARATHON
A leading dementia charity is enjoying a £6,000 windfall – thanks to the efforts of the sales manager at a Norfolk house builder.
Clare Cornish, sales manager at Abel Homes, raised the money by completing the London Marathon – her first – in a very creditable 4 hours 20 minutes and 55 seconds.
She was one of 2,000 runners in the event raising money for Dementia Revolution, a joint campaign created by the Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK to power ground-breaking research at the UK Dementia Research Institute.
Clare’s grandmother suffered for many years from dementia, and three years ago her father was diagnosed with the condition.
“We are extremely proud of Clare for taking on such a massive challenge, and despite fighting injury during her training, completing the marathon in a tremendous time,” said Abel Homes managing director Paul LeGrice.
“As well as congratulating Clare, I would like to thank all our customers, suppliers and partners who supported her fundraising efforts.”
