On the 22nd of April 2018, Justin Smith ran the Virgin Money London Marathon for MACS, a charity supporting children who are born without eyes, or with underdeveloped eyes.
Various local fundraising events have been organised, concluding with a charity meal and head shave at The Prince Albert Pub on Silver Street.
On the 24th of April, the Prince Albert hosted a sausage and mash fundraising meal, which concluded with Yiorgos (widely known as George), the barman, having his head shaved. The evening raised over £400, with more than this amount yet to be collected from sponsorship.
Justin would like to thank Yiorgos for being a great sport; Steuart Northfield for organising things; the Prince Albert pub for hosting the event, and to Steve of Fresh Approach Hairworkers of Witchford for the shaving!
The running total for MACS so far is close to £3,000 – and rising.
