Volunteering - a marathon not a sprint!

Our volunteer, Alice, successfully completed the London Marathon in a time of 05:27:05. She has raised £671.22 for unfunded activities at Three Cs.

Alice was a befriender to Diane. On her JustGiving page, Alice says, "Working with Diane [was] a wonderful part of my life and I want to help raise money so that Three Cs can continue supporting amazing people like her". This is a particularly impressive achievement as Alice remained dedicated to Diane, Three Cs and her training after having to pull out due to injury last year.

Despite time having passed since Alice was befriending Diane, Diane remembered the time they spent together (raising the roof at Songbirds and enjoying a drink or two!) and was delighted to add her voice to the cheering crowds at the marathon this year. It is a fantastic example of how a volunteers' drive can bring such diverse benefits to Three Cs and the people we support.
