Rowena Rhead and Sue Painter from Ark Nursing presenting Neil with his chequeNeil Bright, a Senior Care Worker employed by Ark Nursing & Care Agency in Northam, Bideford, put in the hours when it came to the London Marathon on Sunday 26th April. With a Marathon time of 5 hours and 26 minutes, Neil’s pounding of the streets of London raised £100 for the North Devon Hospice from Ark’s office and agency staff.

Whilst Neil was not expecting to beat that year’s winner, Samuel Wanjiro from Kenya, who broke a new course record at 2 hours 5 minutes and 9 seconds, he was way ahead of the slowest contestant who took 30 hours and 10 minutes.

Neil has trained hard for this event and is proud of his achievement.
