Introducing our London Marathon Runner…




World-renowned, the London Marathon is spread over a fantastic course. Setting off from Greenwich Park, runners pass the capital’s most iconic landmarks for 26.2 miles to come to a stunning (and rather sweaty) finish on the Mall.

We had one coveted place to give away and are proud to introduce our Marathon runner, Brian Wassall!



Bri doing what he does best!

Bri doing what he does best!

45 years young (!), Bri was born and bred in Congleton where he lives with his wife Helen and two children. He joined the Royal Navy at sixteen as a Marine Engineer, serving for eight years. In 1996 he joined AstraZeneca, Alderly Park where he works as a Utility Plant Controller.

Bri recently ran the Congleton Half Marathon in aid of Help for Heroes, and is also a dedicated member of Boalloy Running Club for whom he takes part in summer and winter events in the surrounding area.

Bri knew he wanted to cross the prestigious London Marathon off his bucket list and raise money for another charity. He heard about Act4Africa through friends and was inspired by the important work we do for women and children in impoverished African communities.

We wish Bri the best of luck, and encourage you to spare a few pennies (or pounds!) for a great cause and a big challenge. For every £1 you donate, 90p will go directly to our projects in Africa.
