The London Marathon

On the 24th April 2016, Mark Crawford successfully completed the London Marathon.  The conditions were wintery, but Mark did brilliantly – running the full 26.2 miles in 4 hours and 6 minutes.

Mark raised £5700 – a true champion!  This money will be used to build capability within South Africa – transforming services from institutional to person-centred services.  We will be revisiting the Pietermaritzburg Mental Health Society to assess their progress 18 month’s on from our baseline assessment.  The next Mental Health Society to undergo our baseline assessment and year-long development programme is the Durban and Coastal Mental Health Society.  We commence work here in August 2016.  Last year this organisation reached 56 021 beneficiaries through their Social Work Programme, 7 Residential Care Centres, 9 Protective Training Workshops, and 9 Day Care Centres.  Bit by bit we are impacting the way that services are delivered within South Africa.

So thank you very much to everyone who donated to support this event.  Your generosity truly makes a difference.
