Fundraising effort raises money for FSID
Peter Spargo, HR manager at Stancombe, Tarmac’s regional office in Flax Bourton, near Bristol has raised over £2,000 for the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (FSID) in memory of his little boy Henrik, who died unexpectedly shortly after he was born.
Peter ran the Brighton Marathon in April and has continued to fundraise since, collecting £2,180 for this worthy cause, which includes a donation of £200 from Tarmac.
Peter says: “I’ve been overwhelmed with the support that that I’ve received from everyone at Tarmac, which really spurred me on during the race, especially when I hit the dreaded ‘wall’ at the 20 mile marker and I managed to stagger to the finish in 3 hours 54 minutes. I am especially thankful to everyone who has sponsored me.”
FSID’s Chief Executive, Francine Bates OBE, said: “I’d like to pass on a huge thank you and congratulations to Peter from everyone here - running a marathon is an amazing achievement.
“Without supporters like Peter we would not be able to fund vital research, support bereaved parents or raise awareness of cot death, which claims over 300 lives every year in the UK.”
