Adam Willington

I have always wanted to run the London Marathon, it has been a dream of mine since I watched my Dad run the Marathon when I was younger. My wife is a Fundraising Assistant at Primrose Hospice and I know how hard everyone there works to raise money so that people with life limiting diseases in our local community can get the care that they need at the end of their life. It is a win- win situation for me 

Training: I am a Corporal in the 2nd Battalion Parachute Regiment, and I have been doing regular long distance runs around our local area and with work to build up my stamina. I am hoping to also re- run the marathon on a treadmill donated by local gym (TBC) at Sainsburys in Redditch to raise more money for Primrose Hospice. If you would like to donate please go to

Jack Harris

When the opportunity arose to run the London Marathon, it was a challenge I couldn't turn down. After recently conquering Kilimanjaro, this seemed like another great personal challenge, but I hadn't anticipated quite how difficult the the training would be. Kilimanjaro seems a walk in the park in comparison with running 26.2 miles.

At times, when running through wind and rain, the only thing keeping me going was the fantastic work the Primrose Hospice do within the local community and raising as much money as possible for them.

The Marathon also coincides with the 30th Anniversary of my employer, Holtbolt, being in business. They have shown me so much support for running the Marathon, this is a great way to celebrate their own achievement.

Through a Valentine's Ball we have raised a fantastic amount already, however the Primrose Hospice always needs more funding to carry on their brilliant work. If you would like to donate please go to

Hi my name is Matthew Rose and I'm 28 and I live in Redditch, Worcestershire. The London Marathon is event that I have admired for a long time and as a keen runner I thought it was about time I took on the challenge of 26miles. It's fantastic that this nation holds such event where the country comes together and raises vast amounts of money for their chosen charity.
I have chosen Primrose Hospice as they are a charity close to my heart and the work they have done and continue to do going forward is remarkable.
In February along with Jack Harris, I held a charity Valentines ball in which we raised over £3000 towards our Marathon sponsorship.Please donate to

From everyone at Primrose Hospice we would like to thank these lovely lads for their amazing hard work and effort they have made. Primrose Heroes.
