London Marathon Success Halesworth Residents go the distance!
Becky Jones runs the London Marathon
WE are astounded by
the support of this local community. When our daughter Beth fell ill last March with meningitis so many people sent us well wishes, prayed and helped us in all areas of our lives, including running our then newly opened venture de Argenteins and Steve’s survey company, caring for our son Ollie and visiting us in our darkest hours. Beth thankfully made a miraculous recovery after fighting for four weeks in Addenbrookes PICU and then back at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Beth now has epilepsy and she has to have a hormone suppressant drug every three weeks as her pituitary gland switched on when she had a brain bleed from fighting the meningitis. She still smiles her way through everyday and is learning and developing in the loving environment in which she is cared for. To say thank you for giving as a home and haven when our daughter was fighting, we wanted to fundraise for the Sick Children’s Trust. took on the
I great challenge
of running the 2019 London Marathon. I trained through
wind and rain, sometimes five times week. Along with running a business, caring for two children
and running a
house with my husband. We held a quiz night, themed food events, bake sale, Body Shop party, raffle, music night, used social media to get noticed. Local papers, businesses and charities also supported us. When the day arrived, I was terrified. Hoping to just get around and thank everyone for the support we had received. My knee was hurting from 8 miles onwards and the following
18.2 were really
tough! I met a lady at 12 miles and we then made the rest of the 14 miles together, encouraging eachother every step of the way.
My family, children,
husband and the charity were at various points on the course, giving me the strength, I needed to get round. Turning the final corner and seeing the finish line was truly amazing, crossing the line knowing I had completed the challenge. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, however what Beth went through gave me the strength to do it. We raised an amazing £13,314.14 for the Sick

12 Marathons in 12 months done!
THE marathons maybe done but the need to spread awareness continues. I embarked on the challenge
of running 12 marathons in 12 months in memory of Oliver Hall. Sadly, friends Bryan and Georgie lost their beautiful 6 year old boy Ollie in October 2017 to Meningitis B. From being a happy healthy boy, Ollie died within 24 hours. I just had to do something so I entered Marathon to
the Edinburgh raise awareness
Children’s Trust. Allowing families to have a home while their children
unwell. I can honestly say without them we wouldn’t have got through the toughest two months of our lives.
If you still want to donate towards the Sick Children’s trust, Steve is taking on the Surrey 100 in August this year. A bike ride from the Olympic stadium to Surrey in one day. Donations can
be made in
de Argenteins or online at: www.justgiving.co
Thank you again for all your support and donations. Halesworth and surrounding areas you are truly amazing!! Love Becky, Steve, Ollie and Beth xx
WE would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who had a go at guessing Jed’s time, everyone who came in and supported us on Marathon Monday’s with Paddy & Scott's Cof- fee as we raised an incred- ible £574 for Children with cancer! Well done Jed and thank you everyone!
and money, this evolved in to the 12-in-12 challenge which has seen me running all over the country from Edinburgh to Gravesend, plenty of places in between and culminating in the London Marathon. I can’t believe it's now six weeks since the 2019 London Marathon and the conclusion to my 12 marathons in 12 months. I had hoped to have finished it with a 3hr15min PB but that beast of 26.2 miles had other ideas for me. Marathons are never easy and this one was my hardest of the challenge. My training was indicating a good time and I felt confident however I hadn’t
account the emotional toll of the day and challenge. I know this challenge will have a lasting effect on me for the better. If you set your mind to it you really can do anything. Thank you to each and every one of you that has supported
me on the last 12 months. Thank you for your donations and spreading awareness of Meningitis B it’s made a huge difference. The final total raised is £7,851.20 with Gift Aid £9425.40!
Featherby for his expert guidance,
Big thank you Neil coaching and
friendship and John Wharton at Bungay Black Dog Running Club. Special thanks you my amazing girlfriend Sarah Lewis who has given me unconditional love
support throughout. and I’d also
like to thank my family and friends and of course Bryan and Georgie for giving me their blessing to undertake this challenge in Ollie’s memory. Please
awareness. Children born before September 2015 will not have been given the Men
B vaccination as part of the UK routine immunisation schedule.
Please check to
see what vaccinations your children have had. Together we can help Bryan, Georgie and their youngest son Charlie raise awareness in honour of Ollie’s memory.
