Out of 212 applicants, Dave secured one of 5 places to run the London Marathon 2017 for Cynthia Spencer Hospice, a charity which is close to many of our hearts at TPN. Cynthia Spencer Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for South Northamptonshire. The cost of running the hospice is over £2.4 million, a large part of which comes from the generous support of local companies and individuals throughout the county.

He will be running, sweating, and most definitely aching his way through this course on 23rd April 2017.
Dave openly admits that this is a huge challenge for him and the whole TPN team are committed to supporting him all the way! We have come up with some fund raising events so do keep your eyes peeled, and of course we will keep you updated on Dave’s training progress via our blog, Twitter and Facebook.
His target is £1250 and we would love to help him achieve this. If you have any fund raising ideas please get in touch, and of course if you would like to sponsor Dave you can do through his official giving page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=TPN-david-earles
