IHCC would like to thank Haberman Ilett LLP for its kind donation of £1,450, raised on behalf of the firm by Sophie Baillie, an associate, for running the London Marathon on Sunday 23 April.
Sophie said of the experience, “Despite all the weeks of training, nothing can quite prepare you for the day itself. Nervously standing at the start line in Greenwich there was nowhere to hide and the race began. The sun was shining and the atmosphere was amazing, with huge crowds cheering all the way along the route. Friends and family were out to support and each familiar face I saw helped spur me on. I am relieved to say I made it to the finish line, not exactly smiling, but having really enjoyed the run. Now I keep being asked will I do it again - never say never, but probably not anytime soon!”
I am very grateful for the incredible generosity of my colleagues, friends and family in helping to raise funds for the IHCC. It is a fantastic amount to be able to donate on behalf of everyone at Haberman Ilett and shows how valuable and important people consider the work of the charity to be.”
Haberman Ilett, a London based specialist accounting firm, has chosen to support IHCC this year. We are delighted the firm has chosen to work with us and are looking forward to organsing a range of fundraising events together. The next event to be held is Haberman Ilett’s IHCC Bike Challenge and School Sports Day later in May.
