From Swindon to… New York?

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

Former Swindon resident Lucy Westcott (now a journalist in New York) is running her first ever half marathon for us in Queen’s New York on Sunday 17th April. As if that weren’t impressive enough, she use her holidays to speak to local schools about asylum and human rights.

Lucy’s already a hero in our eyes, but now it transpires that others agree. Thanks to her marathon fundraising efforts (!), she has raised nearly £400 for the ‘good ship’ Harbour and in the process put herself in the running to win Local Giving’s national Local Hero competition.

You can find out more about Lucy’s efforts here, including how to sponsor her.

Lucy, we wish you the best of luck in your inaugural half marathon on 17th April. We’ll be rooting for you from across the pond!

Go, Lucy, go! I want to sponsor you!
