Radstock-based hairdresser, Jean Meredith and her husband, Roy, celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary by running fifty miles to raise funds for two local causes.
The pair regularly fundraise for local charities through running, having also completed a run for Jean’s 70th birthday.
This time, the pair ran the Cotswold Way, Painswick to Bath, just over fifty miles, gaining sponsorship for the RUH’s Forever Friends Appeal and the Bath branch of Parkinson’s UK, raising a total of £1,213 which will be split equally between the two. Jean said: “I would like to thank everyone who donated, my loyal customers and our friends and family, who gave us donations instead of presents for our wedding anniversary.”
John Saunders, from Parkinson’s UK, Bath branch and Laura Pearce, from the RUH, both thanked Roy and Jean for their continued support.
