Thousands raised for Restoration in Alex's London Marathon Run

3 years ago

Trustee Alex Youngs has raised over £3,000 for the Theatre's Restoration project by completing the 2019 London Marathon in just over 6 hours.

In his first attempt at the gruelling 26.2 mile course, Alex said that he wouldn't have been able to get round if it wasn't for the support of those who cheered him on during the day.

It was an absolutely horrendous 6 hours but having Stuart and Kevin from the Theatre there as well as my Mum, partner James and a few other friends and family made all the difference.

The Theatre is currently fundraising for a few separate projects and has recently completed work on making the roof weathertight. The money raised from the marathon will go directly towards funding a re-fit of the toilets. 

Alex's fundraising page is still open and anyone wishing to donate can do so by following this link:
