A director of Sheffield-based roofing specialists, Martin-Brooks, is putting his best foot forward to boost the firm’s 25th anniversary charity fund.
Jeremy Martin will be taking part in North Yorkshire’s Swaledale Marathon on Saturday (June 11), to help Martin-Brooks reach its £25,000 fundraising goal.
This will be Jeremy’s fourth attempt at the 23-mile Swaledale marathon, which stretches from the North Yorkshire village of Fremington to Reeth, near Richmond and encompasses a 4,128 feet ascent. Last year, he completed the course in five hours and 40 minutes, finishing 227th from a field of 463 and he hopes to do as well – if not better – this time.
Jeremy said “This event is personal test of endurance, as well as a great opportunity to raise funds for our 25th anniversary challenge. I would like to thank all of my friends and colleagues who have pledged their support. Their donations will not only keep me going to the finish line, but will make a real difference to the local charities that are benefiting from our efforts.”
Martin-Brooks has already raised more than £10,000 for its 25th anniversary fund and is committed to reaching its £25,000 target. The organisations supported by the firm include; the Sheffield Institute Foundation’s motor neurone research centre, Help for Heroes, Cavendish Cancer Care, St Vincent’s Furniture Scheme, Sheffield Talking News, The Rowan School, Catcliffe MS Therapy Centre, Amy’s Retreat and Norfolk Park Special School.
