Support our runners in Blackpool

Written by Ellie

The Fuel Card Services team is proud to announce that two of our very own will be taking part in this year’s Blackpool Marathon, as they aim to raise funds for a very worthy cause.

Kicking off at 10:00 BST on April 26th, the race will be a gruelling 26.2-mile test of endurance and determination for Matt Farrington and Tom Cosway from our Burnley office, as the pair embark on what is undoubtedly one of the greatest athletic feats an individual can endure.

They will be running in support of local charity Pendleside Hospice – an organisation dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people facing life-limiting illnesses, as well as supporting their family and carers in what can be some of the most difficult and heart-wrenching circumstances.

It offers specialist palliative care to patients in Burnley and Pendle and as a charitable organisation is wholly dependent upon the goodwill and generosity of the public to keep providing this essential and welcome service.

As such, both Matt and Tom have each created a Just Giving page to help to raise funds for the hospice and they welcome any donation, no matter the size.

Taking in the Blackpool seafront before heading south towards Lytham St Anne’s, then returning to the seaside town for the finish, the route of this daunting event will give both Matt and Tom plenty of time to reflect on their charitable efforts and the good work that all the money that the pair raise can be used for.

As such, we hope you join us in wishing Matt and Tom all the best in their efforts to raise funds for this truly worthy cause. Go get ’em boys!
