Meet our 2023 runners...

Nicole Fraser

28 year old Nicole has been training hard for what will be her first ever marathon alongside best friend Lisa - who will also be running next week in aid of VSA.

“I cannot wait to cross that finish line with Lisa - I have enjoyed making so many memories with my best friend these past few months as well as supporting an amazing local charity.”

Nicole and Lisa have together raised over an incredible £4000 so far!

She will be cheered on by her partner Bradley and their 1 year old son Jude, as well as her family making the trip to London.


Lisa Stephen

Nurse Practitioner Lisa will also be running her first ever marathon, alongside Nicole.

We are truly grateful for Lisa's support. "I see first hand in my line of work the importance of the services that VSA provide, particularly for our elderly population, and was delighted to be given the opportunity to fundraise for VSA whilst running my first ever marathon with my childhood best friend!"

Lisa and Nicole's friends, family and the whole community have got behind their fundraising events that they organised in the run up to the big day itself - amazing!


Niall Mark

Having taken part in ultra marathons in the past, Niall is no stranger to long distance running - but he is relishing the unique opportunity to run the famous 26.2 miles around London next Sunday.

An employee of Ithaca Energy, we are delighted to have Niall on board and his fundraising in aid of VSA has already topped £2000!

Niall has set himself a challenge of completing next week’s marathon in under 3 hours - can he do it?


Neil Anderson

39 year old Neil will be taking on his first ever marathon this weekend!

A Senior IT Consultant, Neil has been putting in the miles instead of being on the golf course over these past few months, raising an impressive £2500 and counting in aid of VSA.

"My goal on Sunday is to set an example to my two boys as well as raise valuable funds for a local charity".

Good luck for Sunday, Neil!


Davie Williamson

Davie has ran marathons previously, but Sunday will see him run the London Marathon for the first time.

Like Niall within our team, Davie works at Ithaca Energy who have been an amazing supporter of VSA - Davie himself has so far raised over £2000!


Antony Ritchie

Sunday will be Antony’s first ever marathon and has so far raised over £2000 in aid of VSA.

“The only other run I’ve ever done is a 10K!”, he admits. “But 6 months ago when given this opportunity, I was determined to achieve this amazing challenge and bring that medal home for everyone who has supported me along the way.”

Antony, 43, who works in Digital Marketing, will be cheered on in London by his wife Julie.
