Marathon runner Stephen Thompson with medal
Stephen Thompson finished the London Marathon in April with a time of 3 hours, 35 minutes and 39 seconds. His sterling efforts have raised nearly £6,000 to date in sponsorship money for SPIN, for which we are truly grateful.

We would like to thank Stephen and all those who sponsored him for their generosity in supporting our charity. The money has helped to support our Prom, and will help to fund our Activity Week in the summer and our Christmas Party, as well as the week-to-week costs of our club.

Of the members and parents who took part in off-line giving, Andrea Baker guessed the nearest finish time and won the box of chocolates.
