Trust staff braving the hot weather at this year's London Marathon

Two Trust staff will be pounding the pavement on Sunday (22nd April) as they take part in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon.   

Cameron Partridge, a call handler from Norwich EOC, will be raising money for The Make-A-Wish Foundation and has been training with her mum for the event since June last year.   

The Make-A-Wish Foundation arranges amazing experiences described as "wishes" to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Recently, Cameron’s cousin was granted a wish from the charity to visit the Lion King show at the The Lyceum Theatre in London.  Cameron wants to raise money so  other children will benefit and also have their wishes come true.

Billericay-based paramedic, Teresa Sharpe is also running the 26.2-mile course in aid of Phab Kids, which is a charity that help and support both disabled and able-bodied adults and children in need to aid them to make a better life for themselves. The charity provide lots of help and support but specialise in providing residential outdoor adventure trips for those in need and their families.

Teresa said: “I have chosen to run for this charity as my sister was mentally and physically disabled. My family and I benefitted greatly from charities such as Phab Kids which made life with a disabled sibling a bit easier.”
