A Brighton charity thanked a recovering heroin and alcohol addict for his fundraising efforts last night (Thursday 21 February).
He also completed the run – in 1 hour and 42 minutes – in memory of his late wife Zoe.
He was part of Team BHT, made up of 22 staff, supporters and clients, who raised more than £3,000 for the housing and homeless charity.
At the event last night BHT presented a prize to Anna Thompson for raising £570 for BHT’s Hastings Young People’s Service and becoming the top fundraiser in the team.
Liz Davies, BHT fundraising officer, said: “Our team of runners all did brilliantly and we wanted to show our appreciation for what has been a huge challenge for everyone involved.
“We really can’t thank everyone enough for their commitment to training and sponsorship, they have all been fantastic.”
