David Finch

BS7 Gym administrator David completed a 12-hour spin marathon as part of his fundraising efforts for the 2016 London Marathon.

I was so thrilled when my application to run in the greatest marathon of them all was accepted, but it was equally exciting to know that I would be raising money for a wonderful charity doing amazing work.

“Seeing as I work in a gym, the spin marathon seemed a good idea to kick off the challenge of raising £2,000.

“It was extremely tough and I did feel very tired afterwards, but it was also a lot of fun thanks to some very generous friends, gym members and staff who gave up their time to keep me company, provide me with short breaks during the day and top me up with water and food.

“I’ve got lots of other things planned to achieve my target, including a bake sale and a ‘guess my time’ sweepstake. It’s not easy, but finding ways of raising the money is all part of the fun!”
