Lane End's Hannah takes on the London Marathon
Congratulations to Lane End’s Conference and Events Executive, Hannah Field, who ran the London Marathon this weekend.
Running with her sister Debbie, Hannah joined 36,000 other participants to pound the capital’s streets in this major annual fundraising event.
Competing for a cause close to their hearts, the sisters ran for Action on Bladder Cancer (ABC) – a charity supporting people with bladder cancer - after their mum was diagnosed with, and successfully beat, the disease.
Hannah and Debbie have so far raised an incredible £2,900 for the charity. Lane End was very pleased to help in a small way towards achieving their goal.
Hannah, who admitted she actively disliked running prior to signing up to the London Marathon, went on to complete the tough 26-mile course in an impressive five and a half hours.
Speaking at the finish, Hannah said: “We did it! Thank you just isn’t enough, everyone has been more than amazing and there is no way we could have done it without your support and good wishes.
“My knees, hips and feet hurt beyond belief but it was so worth it!”
Heni Fourie, Sales and Marketing Manager at the meeting venue in Lane End, said: “Hannah trained really hard for the London Marathon. We were delighted to support her in her mission to raise funds and awareness of ABC’s important work.”
When not competing in gruelling marathons, Hannah is one of our fab team members at Lane End Conference Centre.
Situated outside London in leafy Bucks, the award-winning UK conference and meeting venue comprises eight fully equipped conference rooms, 24 meeting rooms and three dedicated dining rooms – all set in acres of green parkland.
