Heartwood Forest was lucky last weekend to have a supporter pounding the streets of Brighton for 26.2 miles. Alex Mowe, the husband of one of our volunteers, ran his first Marathon in aid of Heartwood and MacMillan Cancer Support and completed this huge achievement in 3 hours 58 minutes.
His fabulous fundraising efforts meant that he raised £1,000 each for both charities, and Heartwood Forest can add this much needed financial support to the appeal fund.
We are 3 years in to this £10.4m woodland creation project, but we still have 7 years to go and around £1m to raise to complete the planting of 600,000 trees, a Community Orchard, Wildflower Meadows, Footpaths and Bridleways to construct and maintain.
Well done and thank you Alex!
