Cliveden Conservation's Tom Flemons beats target in London Marathon

Tom Flemons (he's the one with the beard) with his family at the London Marathon after his successful run. He is still raising money for his chosen charity. If you're feeling generous, you can donate here.

Congratulations to Tom Flemons for being among the record 40,255 runners who crossed the finish line in the London Marathon on Sunday (22 April). 

Tom is the Workshop Manager of Cliveden Conservation's branch in Bath. He finished the run in 3hrs 45mins, which was under his heat-adjusted target time. Unfortunately, he was also a little under his target for fund raising. If you want to help him raise the £1,500 he hoped to donate to charity, click here to make a donation.

The London Marathon is a major fund-raising event for charity as well as a personal challenge for the runners. Tom's chosen charity is The Genesis Trust in Bath, which provides a safety net for homeless and vulnerable people. It provides free food, clothing and low cost furniture, as well as advice, training and work placements to help people get back on their feet and move forward with their lives.

Tom says: "Sunday was a fantastic day, phenomenal crowds and support, great to have all the family with me but just a bit too hot!  I was really pleased with my run in the end.

"Thank you to all of you who have helped me with my fundraising for the Genesis Trust in Bath, whether by sharing posts or donating. I am just a little short of my £1,500 target and would love to beat that to complete a truly memorable experience."
