Ed and his fiancée Kerry are running together in support of The National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) a fantastic charity who are dedicated to helping change lives of many children and families for the better that are coming to terms with childhood deafness.
Both are keen runners and have completed half marathons in the past, but Ed admits to being slightly daunted by the need to cover twice that distance in just a few weeks’ time. “The thought of running 26.2 miles is quite scary but we have been training hard since Christmas and are slowly increasing the miles.
Motivation has been difficult at times, especially in the winter weather, but we are both looking forward to the big day and are hoping the London crowds will carry us across the finish line!”
With the support of friends and colleagues the couple are aiming to raise £3,600 for the NDCS. “This really is a very worthwhile cause so if there is anyone out there in the wider jewellery industry who knows me and would like to contribute a little something to help our charity to continue its great work that would be absolutely fantastic!” he says.
