Both Jacob and Cameron crossed the finish line in under 5 hours, with Cameron finishing in 4 hours 3 minutes, and Jacob finishing in 4 hours 47 minutes. The duo together raised over £6,000 for ludlowthompson’s partnership charity, Centrepoint.
Centrepoint is the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity and supports 16-25-year olds by providing housing, healthcare, and education in important life skills. They support more than 9,200 homeless young people a year with almost a third under the age of 18.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman at ludlowthompson, says: “I’m really proud of both Jacob and Cameron for completing the London Marathon this year and for all those who donated to our partner charity, Centrepoint.”
“Though the race is over, there is still time to donate to an important cause. Homelessness among young people in London is a worrying issue and Centrepoint is working hard to help get vulnerable people off the streets.”
Jacob Burston, Senior Lettings Manager at ludlowthompson, comments: “Having never run a marathon previously, I was slightly apprehensive on the morning of the race but the nerves soon wore off as soon as I saw the overwhelming support from the crowds who are urging you on.”
“The atmosphere is incredible and it’s such an emotional experience. I’ve been humbled by the fundraising support that has come from friends and family but most importantly our customers - their generosity has been astonishing.”
Cameron Thompson, adds “With so many people applying to run for Centrepoint I feel fortunate to be offered a position and help them get to their target of raising £50,000 this year which goes towards aiding the increasing problem of youth homelessness in our capital.”
