 Well done team Woodcraft!


Congratulations to Angus, Debs, Neil, Rich and Sean our valiant team who ran the Brighton Marathon to raise much needed funds for the Folk. All completed and in some impressive times. We simply cannot thank you enough you are truly amazing.

Also thank you to those who came to support and cheer on our runners and all those running for amazing causes, standing for hours in the rain and handing out much needed jelly babies. Thanks also go to friends from Brighton based charity Amaze amazebrighton.org.uk who helped us secure a great cheer spot and set up. And suppliers Beigebell beigebell.com who kindly gifted us our smart green runners vests

Some moments I will remember from the day were,

Sean running towards the halfway mark making it look effortless as he filmed the moment at the same time as running.

Debs missing a jelly baby stop in determination to continue running.

Neils back as he ran towards mile 25 arms in the air thumbs up

Angus still smiling after 24 miles!

Richs delight at seeing his family and the faces of his children seeing him, a definite Ahhh moment.

The pride of seeing the Woodcraft flag & runners take their place amongst all the other charities big and small.
