Simon battles through the rain to raise over £2300 as others raise £1000 more

October 5 2020
Despite all the challenges this year has brought, people have continued to help raise funds for us. Simon ran the (virtual) London Marathon & others have hosted birthday fundraisers or donated in memory of others. We've had donations from eBay sales and some continue to donate monthly. Thank you to all!

Running the virtual London Marathon

Simon ran his (virtual) London Marathon today in a personal best of 4:09:08 despite the cold and the wet. In the process he and his generous friends, raised over £2,300.

Simon said of his motivation to run for us:

I have a ballot place in the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon and would like to use the opportunity to raise funds for the Association.  Our daughter had a transplant just over a year ago and I was the donor.  Since she was diagnosed with FSGS in early 2015, she has received great care and support from the staff at St George's  and I would like to repay that in some small way.

He had this custom running shirt made up with our logo.

 

Raising funds from your armchair

Facebook Birthdays

Margaret, Nilla & Rachael raised nearly £1000 for their birthdays. Thanks to them and their generous friends and relatives.

eBay Sales
