Jo Conquers London Marathon!

We are pleased and proud to congratulate Jo Culpin for having successfully completed this year’s London Marathon. Jo, who is a keen runner, had run a number of half marathons in the past, but felt the need, with some encouragement, to test herself by doing a full marathon.

Despite the appalling weather over the winter Jo persisted in her training. Fortunately, the weather on the day was perfect, if a little warm, and she ran the Marathon in an excellent time. She was so pleased with herself, that she even decided to run again next year!

Like many people in Southampton, after Hannah’s death, Jo felt somewhat helpless and so by running the Marathon and raising well over £1100 (!), for the School, she has been able to do something really positive in memory of Hannah.

We are hugely grateful to Jo and all the money so kindly donated will be used in and for the children in the School, with no deductions whatsoever for admin or other expenses.
