On Sunday 21st September fourteen people set out to run the Bristol half marathon to raise money for the Heart of the Community project. A mix of church members and a few friends and family, some of whom had little previous experience of running distances. Everyone completed the course; the fastest time was 1:31:49. Seven people did it in under two hours, and seven did it in between two and three hours.
Congratulations to all of them! Thanks to their efforts a total of £4,868 (without gift aid) has been raised so far. And there is still time to donate. Let’s see if we can make it £5,000! If you’d like to chip in simply go the the online giving page and click to donate.
