After years of waiting and many unsuccessful applications, Sarah finally secured a ballot place for the London Marathon in 2019. She dedicated her training and race to her grandma, Madeline who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a few years prior. Sarah completed the race in just over 5 hours and raised over £2,000 for the Dementia Revolution.
Following on from Sarah’s success in the London Marathon, George was inspired to run a Marathon too. He opted for the Snowdonia Marathon Eryri. A race that is run half on- and half off-road, encircling Snowdon, running up and down the mountain passes. George was accompanied by his childhood friend, Ben and completed the marathon is 5 hours 5 minutes. Together, George and Ben raised over £1,500, which was split between the Dream Flight Foundation and the London Welsh School.
Dream Flight is a UK charity that takes children with a serious illness or disability on a holiday of a lifetime to Orlando. The experience can be life-changing and gives young people an opportunity to do something that medicine can’t: discover independence, confidence, and a new outlook.
London Welsh School - The London Welsh School (Ysgol Gymraeg Llundain) is a Welsh medium primary school in London, England. Welsh is the language predominantly used for classes and activities. The school offers a bilingual education to children aged four to eleven.
In 2020, George and Sarah adopted Winslow, the American Bulldog, from the Bristol Animal Rescue Centre (BARC).
Inspired by the hard work the BARC rehoming team dedicated to Winslow whilst he was in their care, George dusted off his running shoes once more to help raise funds!
This time, his punishment was the Clarendon Marathon. An off-road race that follows the ancient Clarendon Way from Salisbury to Winchester, along gruelling trials, pathways and tracks. Somehow, George manged to complete the marathon in less than 5 hours and he raised an incredible £1,271 for the rescue centre.
During the Covid-19 lockdowns, children were required to be schooled remotely. Due to limited funding, schools struggled to provide disadvantaged children with access to laptops that would enable them to complete their school work.
When the team at Line Contracts became aware of this shortage, we took action by contacting local schools and supplying laptops and equipment directly to them and families in need.
