T G Baynes Partner raises money at the London Marathon
One of the firm's partners, Louisa Juchau, has run this year's London Marathon raising over £3 300 for Crohn's & Colitis UK a charity close to her and her family.
Having spent six months training Louisa said:
"I’m not a ‘natural runner’ but have been running consistently for 6 years or so, for exercise, and for my mental health, enjoying the peace and head space that running provides. I have applied for both ballot and charity places in the past, but this time I was lucky enough to be offered a place to run for Crohn’s & Colitis UK and accepted it in a flash. The training was hard work, especially whilst also trying to juggle my work commitments and family. Luckily my friends and colleagues at T G Baynes were all very generous and supportive and helped me arrange quiz nights, a tombola, raffle and a ‘Bake Off’. Without their support I would have struggled to raise the amount I did. So, the pressure was on! Having raised my target, and more, I then had to make sure I crossed the finish line! My husband and kids tried to put a spanner in the works, getting covid in the week running up to the big day, but luckily having banished them to different parts of the house, I managed to avoid it! I ran the marathon in a slow but steady 5 hours 17 minutes, and it really was everything everyone says it is and more! My official photos from the day all show me smiling, despite how wet, and hard it was to get around those 26.2 miles! The support from the crowds was fantastic and the atmosphere incredible. A true bucket list tick and something I would jump for the chance to take part in again!"
Congratulations to Louisa!
