Two members of Hampton’s Common Room, Miss Slator and Ms Buckley, have successfully completed the 2018 London Marathon in record breaking temperatures.
Miss Slator has raised £2125 so far for her charity, the Rooprai Spinal Trust, a volunteer run charity that provides long-term specialised physiotherapy for those who have suffered spinal cord injuries.
Speaking after the event, Miss Slator said:
The marathon was by far the hardest thing I have ever done and despite not getting the time I wanted, completing the hottest London Marathon on record feels even more of an achievement. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I’m just honoured to have done it flying the flag for such a brilliant and personal cause.
Ms Buckley was running for Epilepsy Action, and raised £1800 for the charity. She completed the course in four hours and 18 minutes and had a great time running for her cause:
The race was really tough given the unexpectedly hot weather but it was incredibly well organised and there was plenty of water and run-through showers. I had a good race and had a lot of fun, but I struggled a bit at the end due to the weather.
All at Hampton congratulate the two runners for their exceptional achievement and for raising so much for their chosen charities.Back to All Articles
