Huge congratulations to Alan Oakley of Grosvenor Consultancy who completed his first Marathon on 19th May 2019, all in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Alan comments: “Having previously run a couple of half marathons I wanted to push myself further and decided to take part in the Exeter Marathon. Committing to run for such a great charity is such a rewarding experience. It was certainly a challenge, especially at the 22 mile point when my legs started to seize up. However the support carried me on and I was delighted to cross the finish line in just over 4 hours and 35 minutes.”

As it currently stands Alan has raised over £360. Donations can still be made to help celebrate Alan’s fantastic achievement, please visit his Just Giving page –
