Phil – Marathon Man

Please meet one of our amazing supporters Phil. In 2023 Phil decided to take on the massive challenge of running the London Marathon to raise money for James Hopkins Trust! He spent many hours pounding the streets of Gloucester training for this notorious event. Phil was regularly spotted in all weathers, running through the streets of Barnwood, Hucclecote, Longlevens, Brockworth, Coopers Edge, Abbeymead, Upton St Leonards and Eastern Avenue sporting his orange James Hopkins Trust running vest!

After all of his hard work training, Phil completed the marathon in 3 hours and 43 minutes. Such a fantastic time, he also raised an enormous £2080 for James Hopkins Trust. We are incredibly grateful and pleased that Phil continues to be a great friend and supporter of the Trust.
