Three Cheers for our Amazing Alumnae Runners

Many congratulations to Annabelle Stoney, Class of 2018, and Hannah Bartholomew, Class of 2017, who successfully completed the iconic London Marathon this weekend, for causes close to their hearts.

It’s not too late to donate to their fundraising missions, so please show some LEH love and support to reward their incredible achievements. A record-breaking 50,000 people took part in the 26.2 mile run through the capital on Sunday (21st April), which is recognised as the largest annual fundraising event in the world.

Annabelle, who completed the challenging course in four hours 21 minutes, was running in support of Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) in memory of her classmate Katie Benson, who tragically died aged 18 in her first year at Nottingham University.

“I will be immensely grateful for any donations,” says Annabelle. “Each week in the UK at least 12 apparently fit and healthy young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. By supporting CRY you will help save young lives from these potentially fatal cardiac conditions.”

Annabelle’s JustGiving page is here: https://www.justgiving.com/page/annabellestoney.

Police Constable Hannah Bartholomew crossed the finishing line at three hours 54 minutes. She was running in aid of London’s Air Ambulance Charity having seen them in action first hand during the course of her work.

“I’ve witnessed their crew perform complex procedures on people whose lives are at risk from random cardiac arrests, stabbings and road traffic collisions,” Hannah explains. “It is astounding that they are a charity, who rely on donations in order to continue providing advanced emergency medical care under incredible pressure (for free) to Londoners.”
