Congratulations Alan and Linda! Brighton Marathon 2014!

We could not be prouder of Alan and Linda who both completed the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 6th April in less than 4 hours! Alan’s time was 3 hours and 38 minutes and Linda’s time was 3 hours and 55 minutes.

I felt privileged to be able to cheer them along the way and meet with them at the end at the St Barnabas tent – to date they have raised an impressive £870 for such a worthy cause.

Alan has already signed up for next year!

Well done to you both from all of the residents and staff at Valerie Manor!


  1. Hi, really enjoyed the read!

    Preparing for anything fitness related is always a huge challenge but it goes without saying, congrats! Raising that amount of money is fantastic and even if it was £10 or £15, it wouldn’t make a difference – at least it’s something positive.

    I actually work as a care home assistant for Vestacare, situated in Blackely, North Manchester and nothing makes us happier than seeing a smile on our residents’ faces. We provide private adult care and our main focus is people with learning disabilities as we try to remedy and improve their experiences as much as possible.

    I thouroughly enjoyed the read, nice to see some good left in the world.

    We’d love to hear feedback too as we post every single week so if you get a chance, take a look…thank you 🙂
