Greg’s fundraising marathon challenge

Monks are proudly supporting Greg Wilshaw as he prepares to complete TWO marathons in TWO weeks raising funds for TWO charities.


Greg is trying to raise as much money as possible for Severn Hospice.  He has already reached the £2,000 target to secure his charity place with Hospice UK.  Donations can be made via his JustGiving page.


Greg set himself this challenge in recognition of the care recently provided for his close friend.  Severn Hospice gives specialist care and support free of charge to families across Shropshire and North Powys who are living with an incurable illness.


This is also a personal fitness challenge for Greg, who recently turned 50.  Greg has never run a marathon before and began training in September 2023.  With a month to go, he is now reaching the 15mile range, on track for a finishing time of 5hrs, 30 mins.


The two marathons take place in April, with the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 7th April, followed by the London Marathon on Sunday 21st April 2024.


Patricia Baila, Director and Co-owner of Monks and Greg’s wife, is leading the support:  “This has really pushed Greg out of his comfort zone and I am so proud of him.  It brings positivity from the sad loss of his friend.”


To show your support for Greg and his charities, please donate via his fundraising page.
