    It was fantastic to read your account of the run. I can't imagine doing something so immense ( cos I can't run down the road!) and coming through it to tell the tale. Many congratulations, everyone is so pleased you've done this.

    Really proud of you, Andy. It must have been hard enough getting started, let alone finishing. You've really excelled yourself and done us all proud!

    Andy,
    I did a bit of stalking and ...... amazingly I found you on the rolling footage from the camera at the finishing line.
    It's not great quality but it's enough to identify you!

    Well done!

    Friends,

    As I'm sure this is getting boring i will make this my last post about the marathon, i need to write this as a final thank you to everyone, it has been an amazing journey,

    The generosity of you guys has been staggering and has humbled me

    I managed to beat my target, Yay! we have raised well over £2000.00 and i still have some stuff to sell, so I'm expecting that to be at least another £500 by the time its all counted and collected, and the money as you know is going to help those wonderful children, it will really make a difference to them in their daily struggles and as they smile through the hardships (they are always smiling and laughing somehow) you should be so very proud of yourselves because you have helped make this possible with your selfless kindness

    So with a swelling heart
    I Thank You!

    Andy x
