Nick Jones, based at the Ashfield Land Birmingham office will be participating in the Virgin London Marathon which takes place on Sunday 25th April 2010.

With over 35,000 people taking part in last year’s race, the 2010 marathon will no doubt see a record number of entrants running in what according to race organisers, is now the largest annual fund raising event in the world.

As Nick runs the gruelling 26 mile route, he will be raising money for Shelter, and says:

“After months of hard work and training I’m looking forward to finally getting onto the start line. Shelter is a charity that makes a real difference to people’s lives, so as well as enjoying the experience of running in such a famous event, I hope to raise as much money for Shelter as I can as along the way.”

Everyone at Ashfield Land wishes Nick the best of luck and if you would like to sponsor Nick and make a donation, you can visit his Just Giving fundraising page and help contribute to a good cause:
