Jane Bland - London Marathon for SCF
‘Jane Bland supports local charity in memory of her parents’ and their happy memories at Shuttlewood Clarke Foundation’
In a few weeks’ time Jane Bland will be running the London Marathon in support of Shuttlewood Clarke Foundation. Jane’s parents Norma and Roy Knifton of Vernon Crescent in Leicester enjoyed many happy times at Ulverscroft Grange in the early 2000’s, visiting with the stroke club and benefitted immensely from the support and friendship they received during day visits where they enjoyed a warming home cooked lunch, the tranquil grounds and the relaxing company of others.
Jane commented ‘Dad and Mum passed away in 2008 and 2009 and my mother always used to say, “life’s not a dress rehearsal, it’s for living today” so I’m taking this opportunity at 52 to run the marathon". We are delighted that Jane has chosen to support the Foundation, through a fundraising and training journey that takes a huge amount of perseverance and devotion. Running 26 miles through the streets of London with thousands of other enthusiastic, keen runners will be a thrilling yet exhausting challenge and we would like to thank Jane for her dedication and commitment to the Foundation.
