Bedford Half Marathon Duo

The indomitable Andrew Arnold, who works for our corporate supporters Lawsons, and his wife Carla, ran the Bedford Half Marathon in aid of Spread a Smile on 2nd September.

The race took place in Priory Park, Bedford and is the first part of a challenge Andrew ‘Arnie’ Arnold has taken on to raise money for us. The sun was shining for the race and Arnie said the day was a “fantastic experience”. Well done to him and Carla who completed the 13.1 miles in 1hr 57mins and 2hr 28mins respectively; Arnie even battling through a slight rib injury!

They have raised over £500 for Spread a Smile and Arnie is already back in training for a full Marathon in Milton Keynes on May 7th next year.

Thank you so much, Arnie and Carla, for your sweat and determination! Your fundraising will put smiles on many children’s faces.
