"This was the second time I’ve run the London marathon for links. I ran my first marathon in 2012 for links and thought it would be nice to run my 10th for them. It was an absolute privilege to run for a charity which is run by people I know and I can see the difference they are making to the people they meet and work with. Sunday was a mega day I hadn’t been well for 3 weeks leading up to the event having a bronchial virus but I had to do it so decided I would just be careful on the day. So that’s what I did and with the strength of God I got through the day with extremely high temperatures for running considering training had been done in the cold and slight issues with breathing I did it. Time was of no consequence in the end just the finish was the goal. The support was incredible. Thank you for allowing me to run it’s a day I will never forget." Wendy Groussin

"Despite the heat which was crazy hot, I loved my experience of running the London Marathon for Links International. It’s something I will never forget. Don’t get me wrong it was really hard and hurt at times but the support of the crowd is like nothing I’ve experienced before. So many people have supported me financially to raise almost £2,000, and knowing this kept me going when it got tough. People’s generosity has been overwhelming. Thank you whether you gave via the Virgin Money Giving page or attended the Curry Night fundraiser." - Linda Southwood
