Marathon Mania

Congratualtion to Barry Bray for finishing the London Marathon in great time - 4 hours and 12 minutes.  It's not too late to sponsor Barry for his brilliant efforts

Barry ran the marathon in memory of his father-in-law, Ron Hutton, who died last November. Ron was a tireless fundraiser for Watford Mencap. Barry's Sister-in-law, Monica Hutton, is a resident of Watford Mencap's Hillside resendential home.

Another marathon enthusiast is Nicole Herholdt. Nicole is a teacher in the secondary department at Watling View School in St Albans, for children and young people with Severe Learning Difficulties. 

She is signed up for the Edinburgh Marathon which takes place on 26/27th May.

Nicole decided to raise funds for Watford Mencap because of the support given to a lot of her students. She is hoping to raise as much as possible so that Watford Mencap can continue the excellent work in supporting individuals and families.

To sponsor Nicole please go to

Watford Mencap do not have any marathon places so if you do apply in the ballot for the London Marathon or obtain a place for any of the other marathons around the country, please sponsor Watford Mencap.  We can provide you with support in your fundraising by helping to publicise your efforts and by obtaining a running tshirt with the Watford Mencap logo.
