A 24 year old store manager from Specsavers Aldershot has completed the London Marathon and hopes to raise further last-minute donations for his chosen charity, SeeAbility in the coming weeks.
Gruelling yet amazing!
James Threadgold completed the run in 5 hours, 44 minutes and in his own words says: ‘Boy, it was very tough! But the atmosphere and the crowds kept me going and it is a wonderful sense of achievement when you cross the finish line.’
Raising funds for charity
James did the run for a charity close to his and his colleagues’ hearts. SeeAbility aims to enrich the lives of people with sight loss and multiple disabilities across the UK. James hopes to play his small part in raising much-needed funds to help the charity achieve its objectives.
Donate if you can!
James has set up a Virgin Money Giving web page and is asking local businesses and residents to donate what they can. He has presently raised over £500 but hopes to reach a target of £1,450.
Specsavers Aldershot store director, Mark Dunn says: ‘What James did on Sunday 24 April 2016 is pretty amazing and shows a real commitment to one of the many charities that the business supports. Along with his wife and son, the team at Specsavers Aldershot is so proud of his achievement.’
