Mellisa’s Memorable Marathon!

A huge congratulations to Mellisa Garswood on completing this years London Marathon in a fantastic time of 4 hours 48 minutes!

Mellisa took part in this year’s marathon in order to raise vital funds for the Lancashire Teaching Hospital Charity, after the Critical Care Unit at Royal Preston Hospital provided her mum with life saving surgery, whilst providing support to both Melissa and her father.

We (finally) caught up with Mellisa to hear all about the big day!

I thoroughly enjoyed running the London Marathon and would do it all again tomorrow if I could. The atmosphere was unbelievable, and the memories will last a lifetime. Thank you to everyone who sponsored me and supported me along the way! Those 4am early morning training runs are now a distant memory. The Critical Care team at Royal Preston Hospital are worth the world and so much more. I’ll never be able to repay them but do hope that other families can have the same support which we received. Thanks to them, I was able to call my mum at the finish line….. a story which could have been so different.

Congratulations once again Mel, we’re all very proud of you.
