''On Boxing Day 2015 my Grandad passed away. He spent the final week of his life in the care of Saint Catherine’s. The support they gave to him and my entire family is something I will never forget and will always be truly thankful for. In order to repay them and continue to fund the amazing work they do I decided to run 9 marathons in 9 days in July 2017. I started in Guildford at the home my Grandad built for his young family and finished at the final place he called home in Hutton Buscel. A total distance of 229 miles! My challenge raised an incredible £13,275 for patient care at Saint Catherine’s which was more than I ever expected to achieve. I am so pleased that in the new year I will be able to sponsor an entire day of care for Saint Catherine’s in my Grandad’s name.''
