Greendale’s Stuart Harrison completes the London Marathon smashing his fundraising target for Diverse Abilities!

Huge congrats to our site manager, Stuart, for completing the London Marathon on Sunday in 4hr 28mins! Thanks to everyone’s generosity he smashed his fundraising target and has raised £2070 for Langside School, trough Diverse Abilities.

This is a huge achievement and in Stu’s own words, training was tough, but through his dedication and the donations raised, the money will go to Greendale’s chosen charity, Langside Side. Examples of just how much it costs to provide the necessary and caring services for the children and school are;

  • £35 funds an hour of hydrothrepy which aids development, prevents muscle deterioration and helps reduce pain.
  • £63 funds a days medical supplies.
  • £100 funds the entire nursing team for an hour! (3 nurses and 3 nursing assistants)

Stuart, said: “The day was fantastic and am honoured to have been part of this amazing experience. I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to all of those who donated and helped me exceed my £2000 target.

“I don’t have the words to describe the atmosphere this event has and you cannot help but be inspired by the measures some of the runners put themselves through in order to raise awareness and funds for all the various charities.

“Diverse Abilities is the only charity that supports children and adults with profound physical and learning disabilities in Dorset. We cannot change people’s disabilities but, with your help, we can make their lives fun and fulfilled, giving them a future they truly deserve.”
